UFO sighting over Los Angeles, 2013.02.09 at 3:40am

We were driving on the 105 freeway east towards the 605 south interchange when me and fiancee spotted something off of the Bellflower Blvd exit. It was a bright ball of light, a little bigger than the street lights, floating at a level no more than two light post stacked up against each other.

It was the brightest object in the area. Keeping in mind that this is Los Angeles it rules out a star (both due to its proximity off the ground and the light pollution). We have seen plenty of helicopters and airplanes and that object was neither.

With the manhunt for this cop killer I know that anyone reporting this to the authorities would have been turned away. What makes this impressive to me is that my fiancee has been a long life skeptic, until today. We cannot claim that it was a spaceship with little green men in it, but it was a UFO by definition.
