UFO Sighting at LAX International Airport near the Control Tower on August 20, 2016 at 7:14 p.m. PST

I was at a look-out point near the El Segundo Dog Park next to the LAX International Airport on August 20, 2016.

I was taking photographs of the airplanes taking off and landing with my Canon EOS 80D camera as a hobby.

I did not realize until getting home that evening and uploading the pictures from the camera onto my laptop that I took a picture of a possible UFO at the top left of the control tower at 7:14 p.m. PST that evening, because I was focusing solely on the planes at that time.

I took 139 shots from that location that day, and the object showed up in only one shot. It looked like a round black metal ball with a ring/protrusion in the middle.

The Goodyear blimp that’s always flying around Los Angeles was miles away from the airport at the time, and it was clearly visible, so it could not have been that.

((NUFORC Note: We have viewed the photo, and the object appears to us to be a bird in flight, possibly a California quail. PD))
