Location: Monrovia/Arcadia/Auarte area, CA
Shape: Other
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
There was three lights in perfect alignment(diaganol) flashing in sequence, revealing the size and shape of the ufo

It was a diagnal. Three lights in diagnol form flashing in sequence(one light at a time, but rapid). It was obviously one structure and too big to be a plane or aircraft. I observed this ufo for about five to ten minutes(the whole time I observed this, it was statioinary, not moving at all,but hovering). I also observed two helicopters and an aircraft flying in very close proximity to this ufo. I lost track (or the plane and helicopters turned off their lights)of the helicopter and airplane. As I was watching the Ufo, I turned for a moment only to look right back up at the ufo, and it was gone. Imediatly after I noticed the Ufo gone the helicopters and airplane were right back flying where the Ufo was. I thought I saw the UFO reappear, but followed it in my car only to see a clear sky. I drove around franticly, looking for the UFO, but it was nowhere in sight.
