12/14/13-- My friend and I were in his backyard cooking on his grill (Atwater Village area of Los Angeles), I saw a bright object flying in sky. My friend grabbed his cannon 7D with a long lens and shot away. We weren't sure what we would see, but when the image was zoomed in on in the computer...we were very surprised! What is this? It passed over very slowly and transformed it's shape.
It appeared to be a rounded triangle shape with a raised front end emitting some kind fluid or light from the front. It was very reflective, but seemed to have a light source of its own in the front and back, and had 2 sources of light in back toward the later photos. As it flew, apparently, it became a fireball, then transformed into a more aerodynamic shape. It was flying lower than a plane would and made no sound. Slowly and deliberately it drifted north and was soon it was out of camera range. What is this?
