Location: Long Beach, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:~1.5 hours
Impossably fast moving light following plane and evading persuit.

at approximately 5:00 am 5:10 am PDT I observed a bright white light over head at about 70 degrees south, south west moving erratically and periodically flashing on and off light. the object appeared to be right at or just above the atmosphere. In the span of about 6in in my field of vision the object at extreme rate of speed traveled that distance and immediately stopped with out any distance to decelerate. It did the several times over the course of the sighting. it moved in straight lines and in a tight circular motion and it appeared to hop like in motion quickly accelerating and stopping moving in a circular motion as well as quick straight lines. At approximately 5:30 - 5:45 a high altitude aircraft traveling east passed by the object that was frozen in motion, after aircraft passed by the object it followed behind at about a half inch distance for 6-7in until the object broke away and traveled back to its original position. Continued to move erratical! ly until 6:10 - 6:11 am it abruptly stopped and froze in place, when a second dimly lit smaller light quickly moved from the north to the south and met the first light and stopped at about 9 in away and moved from left to right maintaining the same distance away. About 20 min later the second approaching object moved closer to the first. the first object quickly accelerated away and put about 12in of distance between them in an instant and then flashed out lights. they continued this same patter until I lost sight of both objects with the rising sun.
