Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Bright star-like object seen moving east to west over the Los Angeles area around sunset.

On April 19, 2019, at approximately 7:15 pm, I was driving northbound in Whittier, CA (zip code 90605). At a red light, I observed what appeared to be star. I thought it was unusual for a start to be out so early at that time of day and then noticed that it was moving.

The object was very high in the sky – well above the flight path of planes returning to LAX. The object was moving west. It did not change direction.

Once I arrived home, approximately 4 minutes after my initial viewing, I spotted the object. I continued westbound and slowly faded into the sunset. I did not observe any kind of tail or smoke streak from the object.
