Location of Sighting: Simi Valley, California (About 20 Miles NW of Downtown LA)

Description: I was taking pictures of the sky as I always do especially this day, March 17th, since it was so clear and bright. The weather was perfect. I was enjoying the day, seated in the patio, working with my PC. Then I heard and saw a green helicopter flying low and I tried to photograph it, but couldn't so I kept taking photos of the sky, towards the mountains and freeway 118. Later upon examining all the photos in my PC, I saw the object that looks like a saucer shiny surface and all. (This is a crop of the original, zoomed-in photo.)

Later in the afternoon, I heard another chopper, went out, and there was the same green one. I tried again, but it was too low to focus and I had my camera in zoom, so I could not catch it. Again, I continued to take pictures of the sky at random. I waved goodbye to the green chopper as it went behind the trees and out of sight.

The photos in the afternoon pictures look like triangular objects, but I am not sure they are what I assume they are. I am sure I could not have photographed birds at the distance I was taking this photos. I surely know what an airplane looks like in my photos. Sample included.

Note: The saucer like object photo was taken in the morning. The afternoon photos show dark triangular objects. In both instances the witness attempted to photograph a nearby helicopter. He did not see the objects. Apparently the witness never was able to capture the helicopter in any photos. A photo of a conventional aircraft was sent. (The witness sent this photo to illustrate recognition of the difference between an "unknown" and a conventional aircraft.) I don't believe that the objects in the photos above are due to an "out-of-focus" bird or insect. However, conventional explanations cannot be totally ruled out. The photos were taken with a Canon Powershot G10 digital camera. (This camera has a maximum resolution of 14.7 mega-pixels.)
