UFOs over UFO wilmington, CA 90744 Giant cloud z cloud stair case cloud december 22, 2017 12/22/2017

My mom bursts in the door and talks about gigantic stars.

I first think, "She must be talking about Venus or Mars." I go outside and two massive looking "comets" are streaking gradually away from a gigantic cloud formation. I can understand comets but their trail was astounding. It was a square Z shape cloud or a stair-case kind of bend with an enormous cloud formation that glowed in the moonlight. Their cloud trail ended abruptly and no longer left any kind of cloud.

One of the objects appear to gradually lose radiance and appear to make gradual decline in altitude until it disappeared. The other took off west over the ocean with no apparent drop in altitude but a loss of brightness.

My neighbor was outside and watching longer than we were. However, he only noticed that they moved away from the cloud. The cloud quickly dissipated over the next few minutes adding that it was just recently made. There are other clouds in the sky and none were reacting the same way.

We later waited. The sky cleared as if nothing happened.
