Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 minutes
Large sphere appears in photographs of flying Hawk near Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

I was out hiking and came to a bench and sat down. A shadow passed over me from a Red Tailed Hawk that was flying. The Hawk was near the sun and I stood up to photograph it with my cell phone camera a Samsung Galaxy 5s.

With the Hawk near the sun, it makes for a good picture showing the colors of the Hawk really well.I was holding the camera out away from me arms length. I Noticed A LIGHT IN the picture and figured it was sun light because I was taking pictures with the sun in them.

When I brought the camera down to view my shots there was a sphere in the background in some of my shots. It was white and had brighter dots of raised lights that changed patterns seemed to rotate from top to bottom I have 6 or 7 very clear pictures of it.

I was standing a 1/2 mile away to the south from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in LA Canada California.
