Duration:~5-7 minutes
Hovering light seen over La Puente

I had just returned home around 8:30 pm and once I got settled I went outside to feed my dogs. As I was feeding them I noticed a very bright light that resembled a star sitting just west of my house. I jokingly called out to my brother, “hey check it out the star of Bethlehem is over the house!” When he came outside to see it we were discussing what it could be, possibly a planet or a large star when the object slowly started to move. I quickly pulled out my phone and started recording for almost a full minute. I have a good smart phone and I began to review the video I had just taken while the object continued at a snails pace in a northeast direction. The video was completely black sky, which I found to be unusual considering how large and bright the object was. The object then began to pick up speed and in my frustration I snapped a photo since my video was less than remarkable.

We continued to watch it fly and as a helicopter approached from the east heading west (the object was very high compared to the position of the helicopter) the object quickly dimmed its light. It could still be seen as a tiny speck of light which quickly disappeared in seconds.

My brother and I were still talking about how strange it was when I remembered that I had taken a picture. At first glance it looked like I had gotten nothing, but when I zoomed in and cropped the picture several times there is definitely something there. It is the object we had observed; only the picture captured the object differently than we had seen with our eyes. We had seen it as a very large bright light and in the picture it kind of looks like a grey glow worm with eyes.

There are always airplanes that fly over the house but this was not an airplane or helicopter or anything I’ve seen relative to our technological capabilities. I’m not sure how long it had been stationary prior to me going outside and spotting it but it definitely was something remarkable that my brother and I won’t soon forget….
