Three orbs were seen in the skies in Sherman Oaks and Van Nuys three different times since Feb. 24.
The Mutual UFO Network, MUFON, opened a case on the sighting (MUFON Case: 45954). Steve Murrillo, the chief investigator of the Greater Los Angeles MUFON, said that a lot of sightings in the Studio City and San Fernando Valley areas have been attributed to Chinese lanterns lit off during holiday seasons.
See some of the reports below, and footage.
Real UFOs also collected the information.
The filmers comments include:
I was in a parking lot across the street from Burger King eating some food. About 20 mins before I started eating, I was driving, left work listening to the radio when I heard a report on kfi-am640 about calls coming in about lights in the sky, then I heard something about a meteor shower. When I saw the lights in the sky I assumed they were meteors. Thats when I noticed they were moving slow. I grabbed my phone and began recording. There were 3 (looked like) orbs that were a glowing red/ orange. In the video there are 4 lights that appear. The light on the far left is a star. I thought I could use it as a reference. Thats when one of the orbs began disappearing. Then another faded away when I heard a helicopter and looked up and saw another red glowing light. The 4th one then disappeared about 2 mins later. I stayed in the same place for another 10 mins or so looking up but I didnt see anything after that.
This report is filed at MUFON.
