Posted: 5/20/2016
Location: Torrance, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:45 minutes
Sphere with flashing and brightly colored, tentacled lights. Sat right off the coast, just to the south of LAX for 40 minutes. Was very visible. Object slowly moved west off the coastline.

At times, the object would go into rapidly changing light sequences. It almost seemed like a pattern. Like it was trying to communicate.

I watched the object through binoculars for 15 -20 minutes. It flashed very brightly a few times and then would display color light patterns.
