Large black object seen through windshield by two pilots...

Avenal, California - 11-19-18

Shape: Other - Duration: 3 seconds

I am an airline pilot for a major airline. At 10:45 local California time, we were at 35,000 feet over Avenalm, Ca.

As I was heads down briefing the descent profile into LAX, I saw a large black object go through my windshield view. I was initially startled, and my first officer looked to catch a glimpse.

I asked ATC if there was any traffic in the area and he responded that closest traffic was 20 miles away.

The other traffic was behind us at the same altitude heading same direction. They did not see anything.

Iím not 100% sure what I saw because I caught it in my peripheral vision and saw it go by very fast.

It was a large black object that had no wings and did not leave a contrail. I am also not sure how close it was, but I do know that it was closer then the normal thousand foot separation of other aircraft.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and we were impressed with his apparent sincerity and qualifications as a witness. We suspect that he is a highly reliable witness. PD))
