I was advise to post this here instead of in the Welcome thread. This was taken from my Balcony. You'll notice a lot of lights those are lights on a parking structure, but one singular light that is a bright whitish blue, is the object in question. It never really moved, though at times it appeared slightly bigger or smaller it could have been going straight forward or straight back, not sure. We watched it until the battery was nearly dead and then decided to go and see exactly where it was in the sky. We failed as we moved closer to Calabasas we lost sight of it and when we returned home it was gone.
Actually I had hoped you would open a new thread in this subforum, but if it's OK with you, we can leave it in this thread. Maybe, if an admin sees this, they can make it a thread of its own. Thanks again for posting.
So is there any building, tower or structure in that direction which could have had a bright light, maybe a floodlight for construction etc? If it's not asking too much and if you have the time, could you post a daytime photo taken roughly from the same angle, so we could see what's actually there. But I guess, when you were getting closer, you would have seen such a structure.
For a second I could see a smaller red light flashing to the left and above. Was that a helicopter? Did it (or did they, I guess there were more) react to the object?
Did you hear anything when you tried to get closer? Like chopper noise etc.?
Venus? Currently it's in the western sky after sunset but sinks below the horizon later in the evening.
The video was uploaded in March of 2011. So I guess the sighting was shortly before that. Of course, Venus is always a possibility, but it would have shown up on any sufficiently cloudless night and, because the video is made from a balcony, I'm guessing that Myself would have identified it by now.
@ Myself: did you see anything since? I would recommend keeping a camera ready near the balcony, in case something shows up again.
