White/Chrome sphere hovering over West Los Angeles (Brentwood Ca.) producing brilliant / disappearing lights

Hello, I want to share an experience on an object that I observed hovering on June 7, 2020, in Brentwood CA. (West Los Angeles). I also reported the incident to MUFON (Case # 109330) hoping they reach out to me but they still haven’t.

On June 7, 2020 (Sunday) from 11:20 AM - 11:25 A.M., I was working a security detail in Brentwood which is considered West Los Angeles near Santa Monica beach. This particular day was beautiful, there were no clouds, it was warm/bright (74°), and it was windy with a wind gust of 8.1 mph (per the weather map). My attention was drawn to what I thought at the time was a chrome helium balloon. I didn't think much of it because it's normal to see neighborhood children or people at the beach releasing balloons, but this one captured my attention. While staring at the object for several seconds, I kept asking myself why wasn't the balloon flying away in the direction of the wind and why was the object hovering over residential homes for several seconds. Then for a quick second, I thought maybe someone decided to tie this balloon to a very long string and let it loose, well I was wrong.

As I kept looking at the object, my analytical mind went on overload and that's when I realized, I wasn't looking at a balloon, a plane, a helicopter, a blimp, or even a drone. The object I was looking at was white or chrome and it was in the shape of a round sphere. The object kept hovering up & down in a very fast manner. At times the object will move from side-to-side and on a few occasions, the object will hover downward and disappear showing a circular flashing light then it will reappear in a different location. During the movements, the object appeared to be slowly rotating while it produced a glowing brilliant light. While the object continued moving, I saw it morphed into two round spheres. Both objects were connected and glowing. It almost looked like a dome but I wasn't sure.

The objects were producing what I call a strobing light as it appeared in and out of the camera frame. As the object hovered, it turned into what I call a "donut" shape. It had a black circle in the middle of the strobing object while it hovered towards Santa Monica beach. I lost the object for several seconds allowing me the opportunity to retrieve a pair of binoculars from my car. It took me seconds to find the object, but when I did, it was a spectacular sight the object was rotating counter-clockwise as it produces a brilliant chrome light, that's when I saw the second sphere (or dome) that was connected. I eventually lost the object as it traveled west towards the beach. To remove any doubts, this object was not a plane, helicopter, blimp, or a drone. These mentioned items make some type of noise, the sphere never made any noise and hovered in the direction towards the wind.

I’m a retired Law Enforcement officer with over 20 yrs. of patrol and investigation experience. As a lawman, you are trained to see, hear, and find rational explanations of what’s occurring. You also develop a “7 sense” that many people will never have. In my career, I have seen my share of strange, unusual, and unexplained things but this time it's beyond my explanation.

For reference, I recorded the object on my Samsung Note 8 cellular phone. I recorded the object three times and I took several still images. On some of the images, I added a dark background showing unusual things within the flashing pictures.

Thank you,
