|Bright lights over Torrance.
I drive for a ride sharing company. I picked up a passenger, a girl in her late teens apparently, from the Del Amo Shopping Center in Torrance around 2pm. Heading north on Hawthorne blvd., I noticed an extremely bright white light ahead, about 1000 ft. up. (Bright like the reflection of the sun off a car on a sunny day.) It headed east, about the speed of a helicopter. I turned right on Redondo Beach Blvd., traveling east as well.
As I had a customer on board, I wanted to remain professional, and asked if it was okay if I pulled over for a second. She complied. I parked and stuck my head out the door. The light was now stationary, at about an 80 degree angle from us and northeast.
I then noticed a second light to the right, stationary, at the same height. This one displayed a lattice-like protrusion, with structure inside, but I could see the sky in between its spaces. This "tail" swung counterclock-wise from 2 to 7. No sound from either.
I told my passenger to take a look and grabbed my phone to take a picture and video. It didn't work, informing me that my SD card was full. I know it had plenty of space. I hated to leave, but felt the need to get my passenger home safely. She told me she took video on her phone! I had her send it to me and I will forward it as part of this report.
Later that night, my phone was able to take pictures again, but all the photos that had been stored on it were now gone.
