Duration:15 seconds
daylight obstruction / eclipse before area wide power outtage in Los Angeles.

I was in my bathroom on the backside of my house which is located in Burbank, CA it was approx. 12:15 in the afternoon. I didn't have any interior lights on in the bathroom as it was in the middle of the day and very sunny. The weather conditions were extremely clear with little to no cloud cover. Momentarily I noticed that the sky darkened considerably for approx. 5-9 seconds. I was confused as to what was causing it. Looking out my window I expected to see a truck park in the back driveway behind the house but there was nothing. Before I could get outside the sky had already illuminated itself once again. I saw no obstructions behind my house and nothing to explain it. Seconds later the power went out for the whole Southern California region. I was a little struck and thought that it was a coincidence or something else. I detected no craft but cannot explain the strange darkness in the sky before the power outtage. This report is being submitted for the sole fact that it occurred in broad daylight and possibly was noticed by others.
