Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 15-20 secs
Large, rectangular, pale green-blue object spotted at approx. 2:37 am, 10/11/04, moving east over the San Fernando Valley.

I was taking out the garbage very late last night. I glanced up and saw a fairly dim shape, like the wings of an old-style plane, rectangular and wide, moving overhead, but without a nose or a tail. The size was approximate to that of a plane flying over head, the hieght it would be when approaching a nearby airport, but it seemed MUCH higher than that. I couldn't hear an engine of any type, and it was moving FAST, over head and gone in the distance in under 15-20 seconds, disappearing into the haze on the horizon.

It was moving east/south-east. I am in Woodland hills, and it was almost directly overhead, a bit to the north, and passed the length of the San Fernando Valley, then out over what I assume would be East L.A., maybe Glendale and then over San Bernardino. The color was a pale greenish-blue, but NOT glowing - a faint color. The thing that set me off was that there were no running lights of any kind, no identifying shape.

I always look up at the sky when I go out at night, to look at the stars, the moon, and when I saw this, I kept waiting for it to become recognizable, something I could explain. I still can't explain this. My gut reaction is that it was some very large orbital object, perhaps the international space station, but it seemed far to large for that. Please note that my sighting time is estimated at 2:37 am. It took me several minutes to look at a clock. The time could hve been anywhere from 2:35 to 2:40.

I can be contacted if someone thinks this warrants more investigation.
