Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Unknown
Duration:1-2 minutes
Fast Moving White Light Across Los Angeles.

The object appeared to be a shooting star, but lasted way too long.

It was moving extremely fast and the light emitting was an intense white.

The object moved from a northerly direction to a southerly, and lasted approximately two minutes.

Only other guess is that it was a missile from Vandenberg or JPL
