Topic: Has anyone else seen this?
In the last three weeks or so I've seen two--for lack of a better term--ufos. Both were in broad daylight. They were both white, not metallic, with a kind of pearly, translucent gleam in the sun.
The first one was outside my window at home, and I was talking on the phone with a friend in another state (so she didn't share the experience except by my narration). It was at a lower altitude in the sky than a plane or helicopter would have been, but high enough to skim the underside of some puffy (fog-like) clouds that were present. It was slowly moving north, occasionally morphing from a cylindrical shape to a sphere. When it moved over my house I followed it outside and watched it glide slowly away over the mountains. Weather balloon, maybe?
The second was a couple of weeks later. I was babysitting, and the little fellow and I were standing looking out his parents' window (one of his favorite things to do--he's only eight months old though, so not sure if he saw it too). This one was higher in the sky than the last, and stood stationary in the northeast (again over the mountains). It was sphere-shaped and did not morph. I must have stood there staring at it for 15-20 minutes, and it never moved. Then I had to do something for baby, and when I came back to the window, probably another 15 minutes later, it was still there, though it had moved south to the other side of the window. It remained there for another 10 minutes or so, until baby demanded my attention again. The next time I checked (20 minutes), it was gone.
And no, of course I didn't have my camera ready for either of these.
The last time (the only other time) I saw a ufo was in 1991, also in L.A. That one was at sunset and behaved more like other accounts I've heard--it was moving fast, and then disappeared in on itself in a white cloud when it "sensed" it had been detected.
I'm sure there must be reasonable explanations for both of these. Neither of them made me anxious or afraid; I just found it interesting, though a bit odd that I should see two so close together.
Please share your thoughts and rational opinions.
