Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Changing
Duration:10 minutes
Barely visible luminous sphere, slowly changing shape by subtle morphing.

I noticed while I was standing on a friend's terrace, looking up at the skyline of buildings in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles. It was so faint, almost as if it blended into the sky and had to focus really hard to see it. It moved slowly across the sky, much slower than the planes and helicopters flying in the same view. It hovered for a few minutes traveling north/northeast and began to fade and disappear.

The color of light was a pale blue and it wasn't luminous and slightly transparent. The sky was clear and very close to a full moon (which just passed a few nights ago).

When I first noticed it, I could see enough that I would notice the shape of it slowly changing, affecting its brightness at times.
