Rectangular slinky which had the appearance of being made of flat black ribbon dangling from clouds for 10 miles definitely not smoke,

Santa Ana, California, a Friend and I were driving down a busy street westbound (roughly) or facing the ocean side of the state. It was clouded with a solid cover behind some darker cummulus clouds medium altitude and different shades of gray. Over the treetops to our left, out of the corner of my eyes I saw what I thought to be smoke from a rather intense fire.

Being curious, I slowed down, no traffic behind me, just to look over. When I managed to fully stop to view what this stream was, it did not originate from the earth. It was dangling from the clouds in the western skies from over the Pacific Ocean. The only way to describe it is : imagine a slinky made of a flat black ribbon. Pull it open, attach one end to the clouds and let the other end dangle for 10 miles downward and inland for 10 miles.

Then, as I was pointing the thing out to my friend, I noticed a shorter version hanging from the clouds over Los Angeles County. We were in disbelief! because the last time I saw something big in the UFO arena, it was with the same friend in Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida a few years ago.

We do not drink, smoke nor do we take any medication. It was a shame that we were on our way to her job and couldn't take more time to go home for cameras and so on. They were rectangular coils of something which was solid black and didn't dissipate like smoke would. Absolutely not smoke.

It was a perfectly delineated rectangular slinky made of wide flat black ribbon being pulled open and dangling from the clouds downwards towards the earth. Very wierd!
