multiple streaks of light in the distance in rapid sequence

May 25, 2018 - at the hotel at LAX heading home from the week at the Space Tech Expo. It was 8:00am. I was in my room looking out my window, north, aircraft were coming in on final approach to LAX. Right to left. The sun was bright to my right from the east.

It had rained in the early morning and my window was littered with droplets. Off to the west over the channel about 2 miles away, there were clouds with frequent breaks to blue sky. I was scanning the sky for any anomaly that didn’t fit the normal airport traffic. Hoping to spot something before going home. So, was it my imagination or did it really happen?

As I looked at one particular blue patch in the clouds, I noticed a short yellow streak of light ascending at about 30 degrees from right to left (north to south) could have been several miles away and 3-8,000 feet altitude.

I was focused on that spot and then I saw another and another in the space of about 2 seconds there must have been maybe 10 separate streaks in the same location close to each other but occurring separately.

I thought hmmm, probably weather anomaly or some kind of refraction from the rain drops, I went to finish packing to go to catch my flight.

About 8:30, just before leaving my room, I took another look in the same general area and as I looked, I saw a streak just like before only this time for the period of maybe a minute, I only saw the one. Seemed weird, but maybe I saw an exodus of a few UFO’s. it was too far away to make out any craft, only the streaks. Hmmm
