Green tennis ball-like object above Los Angeles Airport.

It was about 4:00pm in the afternoon. I was in an airplane above LAX, and we were flying above the clouds. The sun was shining brightly. I looked out the window and saw a lime green sphere in the sky. It resembled a tennis ball. I could not estimate the size of it; it was hard to tell if it was near or far. It passed the plane on the left side. The object was either hovering in one spot as the plane was passing it or it was moving past the plane in the opposite direction. I watched it pass from the front of the plane to the back. I am a 21 year old college student going into graphic design and illustration. I have had an ongoing interest in the paranormal since I was about 7 years old.
