|White rectangular rolling object that seemed to billow or create clouds as it flew by. Clouds did not dissipate.
Recently I purchased an Orion telescope and have been using it to observe the moon. Early Saturday morning I was about to pack up the scope after enjoying very clear skies over L.A., when I noticed that a thick carpet of clouds had suddenly appeared from nowhere and was engulfing the sky. The light from the moon highlighted some of the clouds as they sailed past it. Through the telescope I observed what looked like a large rectangular white "shelf" moving up and down, in and out of a thick cloud. It appeared to be billowing clouds out of itself. Creating them. I watched it for roughly 10-15 seconds before it left the scopes field of vision and I could not locate it again, mainly because I have limited sky vision due to surrounding trees.
I have observed many bizarre, creepy clouds over the past few years but have never witnessed anything mechanical in behavior until Saturday. Jh
