Hi, before I describe my third amazing unexplainable(as of now) light/s in the sky experience, just wanted to state that I have one report from the same area around 2012 (completely different than my recent experience). The second one was over Malibu while night fishing with my kid, I did not report, but I do have a video attempting to capture the object and you can hear it in my 6 year old's voice that what we were seeing was not like any aircraft flying at night we have ever observed. I thought it was Mars and it ended up changing color and began flying away with typical aircraft flashing lights after being in that position for 10 min. Wasn't enough for me to report imo.

On 06/10/20 around 6:30pm - 7pm while exercizing at a neighbor's house, I noticed a white circle in the sky at what appeared to be a similar height that you would see satellites travel at night. Pointed it out to my workout partner and I told him maybe it's a sta r(which would be rare to see in L.A. while it's day light). Told him to grab his binos to see if it's a star or maybe even a planet.. Was difficult to find in the glasses, but while moving from glass to eyes on the blue/white flashing circle/orb, we spotted more (orange and white stationary,higher altitude, fade out/in and one back to back triangle looking formation) They appeared to fade in and out or maybe the angle of the sun plus how high they were. There were white circles and orange, and I only captured the orange on the binos. At this point I told my buddy I'm getting one of my telescopes, either the Orion xt6 or the Orion xt10i so we can get a better look. 15 min later back with the Smaller telescope and we couldn't spot them with the naked eye. After 5-10 min searching, another object appeared from the South heading north, but appeared to be a bit lower in altitude than a satelite, but way higher than any planes would fly. I was able to train my scope on this, and it looked like a white cloud/balloons spinning compared to tbe sigle circle faint objects. Also, following the object in the telescope was similar to following a planet as far as speed.

Any feedback with answers/ideas on this experience or the last report would be appreciated.

Thank you
