UFO sighting Long Beach, CA - Small spherical bright light reflective object remaining perfectly stationary

I live on the third story of my apartment, facing East. I noticed something small, bright (reflecting light) and spherical in the sky outside my window. It remained in a stationary position just inland of the coast. From my position I estimated it was pretty high, as the Long Beach air traffic was flying well below it. Yet for ten minutes it did not move, so I ruled out balloon and blimp. I tried to record it with my video camera, but the reflectivity of the object and the distance of it made recording impossible, it simply wasn't registering in my view finder... As I put my camera down it began moving slowly toward Seal Beach (Naval Weapons Station) direction. By 16:15 pst it was out of my visual range. There was only one object.

My background is irrelevant to the sighting. I am not ex-military or law enforcement, and I have only seen a UFO one other time, with two friends in 1994. Turned out to be a prototype for a DRONE the military was testing over the neighborhoods of Lakewood, CA.

So this could be anything. I am simply reporting it. Hope someone else out there got a better look at it than i did. Perhaps the pilots passing underneath it?
