Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:20 minutes
White streaks, angled down as if landing

Saw lights slowly streaking across the sky. Not an ordinary plane jet. First, the "tail" or "trail" if that is what it was, was perfectly straight on a very very windy day. It was not drawn out by the wind or made fuzzy or anything. It looked like a white needle against the sky. Second, it took about 15 minutes to move across the horizon. If what I saw was an exhaust tail, the tail was big enough to indicate the plane was moving very very fast, yet it could not have been, since it took 15-20 minutes to move across the sky. Third, unless the object was very far away, but in that case I should not have been able to see it with the naked eye unless it was huge. Also, if they were moving that fast I should have heard some sort of sonic booming - I heard nothing. Fourth, they were flying over mountains, and were angled down 20 degrees as if landing. This is odd. Fifth, there were 3-4 (at least, the first one was already in the sky when I started and the last was still in the sky when I left), which is also strange. Sixth, the crafts were flying right underneath the sun, which could mean absolutely nothing, or could fit in to something else.

At the same time and day, in the same mountainous area, I also saw a wingless plane flying overhead. It was red/ silverish in color (not illuminated - but like paint), had no wings, and was sort of hover flying. It was down so low I could make out its shape, yet it wasn't moving very fast overhead.
