Duration: 3-5 minutes
5-6 glowing orange spheres shoot across the Hollywood skyline Thanksgiving night 2001.

Standing on the roof of an apartment building at approximately midnight on Thanksgiving 2001, we noticed a red/orange glowing sphere appear directly above us in the sky, maybe a thousand feet or so up. The sphere didn't seem too large, we thought maybe it was some sort of weather balloon or small blimp. It was stationary for maybe 10 seconds then it took off very quickly in a straight line heading south eventually dissappearing into the horizon over downtown LA. It moved in the direction the wind was blowing so we didn't think too much of it at first, though it did seem to move much faster & in a much more of a straight line than would be possible by mere power of the wind. Then about 30 seconds later, an identical one appeared & repeated the same pattern. This continued for several minutes. All in all, we saw 5-6 of these spheres do the exact same thing & in what seemed like a precise pattern & timing. It was very curious indeed. I didn't think to report it until now. I just saw an online news blurb about UFO's in which there was a photo of an incident in Arizona about 5 years ago that looked somewhat similar to what my friend and I saw last year. I was curious to see if anyone else in the Hollywood area saw the same thing. We are very "normal", responsible people and run our own small record label. We have absolutely no reason (nor spare time) to lie about something liike this.
