UFO SIGHTING LOS ANGELES, SEPTEMBER 27, 2015 Having been in the travel business and well traveled, I am fairly aware of flight patterns around Southern California airports.

Observance occurred while sitting in the outdoor patio area of the LOS ANGELES MUSIC CENTER COMPLEX at approximately 6:00pm. I was facing east and observed two normal commercial flight patterns. One was a quad-jet jumbo at a fairly high altitude, probably enroute to Europe. The others were a series of aircraft doing their normal circle around downtown Los Angeles on their final approach to LAX. I think these are somewhere about 6,000 feet or so.

At one point I notice something in the sky near the “whispy” light cloud cover. My first reaction was to questions the flight pattern. It was not a normal LAX approach nor was it an approach to Santa Monica Airport which normally occurs further north. The object initially appeared to have alternating right and left side lights, somewhat similar to landing lights on commercial aircraft landing at night.

As it traveled further west, I realized that they were not lights but seemed to be the sun reflecting off of some sort of metallic panels on either side of a vertical cigar-shaped object. I brought the object to the attention of my friend. His first reaction was that it was definitely not an airplane nor helicopter, as its appearance was not in coordination with either of these type of air vehicles.

I continued to watch the object for about a minute or so. I was then distracted with the screaming of young children in the area. I went back to look at the sky and the object was gone. I continued to scan the sky, but never saw it again.
