NUFORC Sighting 72163

Occurred: 2009-09-08 19:48 Local
Reported: 2009-09-08 20:10 Pacific
Duration: approx. 30 secs.
No of observers: 2

Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Lights on object

Two steady, white lights heading northeast in the early evening over northeast Los Angeles.

My sister and I were sitting in the backyard when my sister noticed two lights in the sky moving in a line, as if one was following the other. The lights moved in slow, steady speed. I estimate them to have been approximately 3.5 degrees apart (as when measuring distance between astronomical objects from the ground). The flight path for commercial jets heading east from Los Angeles International Airport is the same. However, these objects made no sound, and shined with a steady white light. The usual red/green/white lights in their usual jet aircraft configuration was NOT observed. Also, the apparent altitude of these objects seemed much lower than the usual altitude at which commercial jet aircraft fly when they pass northeast over our house.

Finally, I have never observed two lights trailing each other in this fashion in the many decades spent observing the skies from my house.
