Date of Sighting: June 1, 2008
Time of Sighting: Began at Around 7 PM PDT

Latitude: 33.98 Degrees North
Longitude: 118.19 Degrees West
Number of witnesses: One
Weather: (Conditions Taken at Los Angeles International Airport.) Clear Skies. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds Were Light. (Some of the Photos Showed Cloudiness. Also the Witness Stated That it Was Windy. Weather Conditions Therefore Differed Somewhat at the Sighting Location Versus the Airport.)

Description: On June 1st, 2008 at approximately 7:00 pm, I saw one white orb in the sky. It was completely static in the sky despite it being a windy day. Then to the left of it another white orb appeared. I brought out my digital camera to take pictures, but could not capture these two orbs. My pictures would only reveal a blue sky. These two orbs did not move, but I suddenly could not view them. They were gone. Disappointed that I could no longer see them, I began to look around that general area in the sky and found two more orbs north from where the previous orbs had been. I was able to photograph these and in fact one orb seemed to split into two! Again these orbs did not move until one orb became two separate orbs (a dim orb and a more defined orb). The dimmer orb moved slowly around the brighter more defined one very slowly. In fact I could not see the movement, but just the different placement of it. The wind moved clouds in my view of these orbs and they became completely enveloped. I could no longer see them. I captured one last orb that appeared from the west and moved slowly across the sky towards the east, until I could not see it past buildings, etc. The difference about this orb was that it was yellow in appearance, as the others were white, and it moved slowly and steadily towards an easterly direction.

Comments: The witness sent several photos. Only two are posted. The photos all show the white (in some photos yellow) object or orbs. The photos were taken with a Canon Powershot A750. This camera has a maximum resolution of 7.1 mega-pixels. The photos sent by the witness were of low resolution. There are two possibilities for this: The witness used a digital zoom setting or the camera was set to a lower resolution. Given the appearance of the photos and the witness report I cannot explain the identity of the orbs.
