Characteristics: The object made a sound
Unexplainable Jet noise in the LA sky

I have no idea if this was a UFO or what --all I know is that it has been bothering me tremendously, so I thought I would go ahead and report it here. What happened was this: at approximately 1 in the afternoon on July 2, I heard what sounded like a jet roaring. It was so loud as to be deafening. I immediately ran to my deck (I was at home)--I also noticed many neighbors on their decks. The sound was incredibly intense--It sounded as loud as if a plane was taking off right above us--we (my neighbors and I) were all covering our ears and frantically (and we were all quite terrified as well) searching the sky for a low flying plane. There was absolutely nothing.

I mean --this sounded like a freight train--like a jet was about to crash directly into us, like it was flying just right over head---the only time I've ever heard anything HALF this loud was in NYC on 9/11 (I was about a mile away from ground zero)--so I just don't understand what it was. There was no plane in the sky--there was NOTHING in the sky for miles around. We all looked and looked. It was a steady, jet like sound that lasted at least 5 minutes and then was just gone; it didn't really dissapate or trail away either. It's really confounded me.
