i was walking back from the corner store when an asian guy getting out of his car caught my attention- he was pointing up into the sky and saying "what's that?"
i figured he was probably drunk or on drugs, but when i turned around and looked where he was pointing, there were about a dozen bright yellow lights ascending into the sky from the west, heading east and up.
i live near LAX, and flights from that airport are all westbound, you leave the runway and go out over the ocean... and there is never more than one plane a minute leaving... this was a disorganized string, they would have had to be leaving one a few seconds after the next.
the wierdest thing was, as they headed east they didn't disappear across the other horizon... they went up until they got fuzzy and faded away.
i don't know of any aircraft we have that can do that... so yeah, strangest shit i have ever seen. i wish i'd had my phone on me, but it was charging, and by the time i thought to run back to the house, grab it, and go back outside, the last two lights were about to disappear.
