Occurred: 2014-11-02 01:30 Local
Reported: 2014-11-03 14:12 Pacific
Duration: 1 minute
No of observers: 2

Location: Venice, CA, USA

Shape: Chevron
Characteristics: Lights on object, Aura or haze around object

2 objects - both 5-7 lighst each in a chevron shape - flying slowly with no noise - three times faster than a DJI drone

Two sets of 5-7 lights flying at 2 heights within 15 minutes of each other.

1st was flying about 5 miles from LAX and above Santa Monica Airport - flying paralelle to beach - flying lower than commercial airlines, but slightly heigher than planes/jets taking off from Santa Monica airport.

2nd set was seen flying perpendicular to the first vessel, but slower and much lower - under 2000 feet and headed directly out over into ocean. Speed was slower than most planes from Santa Monica airport.

Looked like the vehicles were white or metalic/see through reflecting light from city. Very smooth flight. NO noise at all, which would never happen.

I own DJI drones and observes planes all day from LAX and Santa Monica airport, but this was NOT the case. No sound and flight looked Delta formation and could have been changing shapes to thinner as it picked up speed to leave the area into the black over ocean.

This happened between the first 1-2am before daylight savings time.

The sky was clearest in months after a MASSIVE electrical storm the night before.
