Culver City, California - 04-04-13
On April 4, 2013 I was walking north on the eastside of McLaughlin Avenue towards my home at 9 pm and looked up at the stars and saw what looked like a flock of light-colored birds flying overhead towards the Pacific Ocean.
Iím about 5 miles from the beach, but they were too perfect looking shape-wise which was a V-shape and hollow in between the V, so not a solid triangle shape, but a V and Iíve never seen a flock of birds flying at night before like that.
I go for walks or jogs often at night. So I looked closer and kept my eyes trained on the object and it was definitely an object not a flock of birds (98% sure it wasnít birds), because the dull lights stayed in perfect formation like the lights on the bottom of an aircraft.
They were large and circular and didnít blink and the V shape just soared from ahead of me into the distance and I watched it until I couldnít see it anymore.
I was sad about that and wanted to grab my phone and take a picture or follow it, but there was no way. I would have lost sight of it and live in a busy part of the city so chasing it was impossible.
It was traveling pretty quickly but steady. I thought it was either extraterrestrial or American in nature because at the time there was tension with North Korea and it was heading that way, but who knows.
I really donít know its origin, but I felt very fortunate to finally see something that might be otherworldly after decades of believing but never really seeing anything!
It was a clear night by the way and high up, Iím just not sure how to measure how high up it was, but not too high that I couldnít tell that it was lights and not flying birds.
It was silent too, the night was very clear and calm.
