Reported: 9/28/2013 7:42:53 PM 19:42
Posted: 9/30/2013
Location: Whittier, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:10-15 minutes
Large light and small light over Southeast L.A. County

At 6:40 p.m. on Saturday evening, September 28, 2013, I was parked on Whittier Blvd b/t Painter Avenue and Strub Avenue, when I noticed far in the distance a large but bright white light hovering high in the sky. I estimate the large light was approximately 10-15 miles away, to the northwest of my location, which would possibly place it closer to Los Angeles International Airport.

For about 10 minutes, I simply watched it hover in the sky. During this time, I noticed a helicopter flying towards the northwest in the general direction of the light, but the helicopter was flying far below where this object was located in the sky, and it did not appear that the helicopter had seen or was targeting the object. At approximately 6:50 p.m. the large light began to drift slowly towards the north. Then, a second, very small white light suddenly appeared above the first light, and appeared to be moving towards the larger object. At this point, I was distracted by a small crowd of people, but I did take the time to point out the large light to a couple near me, who did indicate that they did see it as well. I looked up again a couple of minutes later, at approximately 6:55 p.m., and both objects had disappeared.
