Two objects...each a 'row of lights' over the West Los Angeles area

UFOs over L.A. Two. Saw them at 5:20 a.m. From my vantage point in WLA, one was holding a fixed position roughly high above direction of Inglewood. The second object was more NW, toward WLA.

Both were equally bright, appearing to be a row of lights with at least one below. Lights were white, with smaller green and amber lights..

Second one began moving west slowly, passed overhead without noise, then out of view.

First held its position from the time it was first visible, then gradually diminished in intensity, and then disappeared around 5:40 AM. Lights went off.

I’m sure they will turn out to be nothing...just some crows with flashlights, pulling a fast one, perhaps.

Did not appear to be LAPD or media helicopters. Lights did not flash, and there was no noise.

((NUFORC Note: Report was submitted by a relative of the witness. Both parties are journalists, and one of them is well known to us, and we deem him to be highly reliable. PD))

((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

What we saw here in L.A.---which NO ONE else apparently reported---was totally, totally anomalous. Completely strange, I’ve never seen anything like it.

Two very very bright objects. Hard to tell for sure, but it looked like three, maybe four very bright white lights in a row, with one or two underneath. A half-cross. Hints of red/amber from time to time. It also appeared that the lights occasionally seemed to move slowly into different positions before going back to original formation.

One object remained stationary the whole time, roughly over Inglewood, very high (one would think, interfering with LAX flight path), and the other moved northwest slowly. I figured it was a helicopter, but when it passed overhead (very high), there was zero noise.

((woman'd name deleted)) is the last person to believe in this stuff, but she’s the one who spotted them and woke me up.

Black helicopters with soundless blades? That’s the only remotely possible “logical” explanation I can come up with. But the stationary one eventually diminished in intensity, then just went suddenly and entirely out. What helicopter roughly in the flight path of LAX turns out its lights in total darkness?
