silver bright flashy hovering object over southern california beach cities

Date of report: June 1st 2018 Date of sightting: May 31st 2018 Time 2:45pm PST

Approxiamately UFO Description: Silvery reflective object Description of UFO object actions: Remained stationary well over, one minute and then flew away in a westernly direction.

location of the witness UFO sighting: Torrance Memorial Medical Center, in the middle of and northern section of the medical facility on the 5th floor. Visiting family member there!.

Estimated location of UFO: Mahattan beach and Redondo Beach in the state of California! Estimated altitude of ufo over hover location 500 or more feet AGL.

My statement regarding the UFO: I saw the silvery reflecting object hovering and motionless, I looked at it and carefully did some motions I moved left and right looking for any anomilies reflection off of other objects no result determined maybe UFO. The view i had I can see LAX traffic departures and determined object was too far south of LAX traffic departures and to low as well. I determined a UFO at this point, attempted to picture of UFO with cell phone object was unable to be seen in screen and no picture was attempted, at this point attempted a 2nd time object was losing brightness and moved away reflection brightness gone.

My statement of my background: I have general aviation flying experience though no longer active, I have flown in high wing Cessna mostly 152 and 172 models and low wing Piper PA-25's mainly. I have worked at LAX as a ramp service agent and refueler. I attend airshows and I am avid aviation afficienado. I fly drones general hobby consumer products and R/C Model aircraft. I'll state this “if it's got wings I am pretty much familiar with it.”

Final statement: Airplanes require forward movement to maintain flight or go higher in height this did not happen and ruled out helicopter because of windy conditions, and reflections not consistent with rotor blades spinning i.e. rapidly continuing pulsating flashes of light and police helicopters would be only authorized to fly low over a city and still have a forward motion for hindering ground gun fire common practice!.
