Duration:One or two minutes
I saw the returning white and egg-shaped Endeavor space shuttle in sky followed by a second egg-shaped object.

On March 25, 2008, the Los Angeles Times newspaper said the returning Endeavor space shuttle from the International Space Station could be seen over Los Angeles, California, in orbit at 8:05 PM March 26, 2008, moving from southwest to northeast. I went outside and saw what seemed to be the egg-shaped and white Endeavor space shuttle moving in orbit at 17,000 miles per hour. But I was very surprised to see a second white and egg-shaped object following the first object with some distance between them and in a straight line thru the sky until they disappeared from view. Total time of sighting: 1 or 2 minutes.

I telephoned the Griffith Park Observatory and a staff member said the second object was probably a chase plane. But a chase plane would not move at 17,000 mph at that high altitude in orbit path on its way to Florida. The Endeavor shuttle landed in Florida (due to weather it had to make two extra orbits of Earth) on March 26, 2008.

The evening sky was clear and the two objects were about the same size and egg-shaped.
