Distance of UFO(s) in sky: At least 3000ft. probably much higher like 5000 or more..
Direction of Travel for UFO(s): from North to South
Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): Airplanes taking off from Long beach Airport nearby, Powerlines,
Further Description of Sighting: About 1230pm to 0130pm mid-day. From my angle of view about 40 degrees angle up in the unobscured daytime sky. A bright object due to it reflecting the sunlight contrasting against the blue sky.
Even though very clearly visible to the human unaided eye, I looked at it with my 16x binoculars and it appeared silvery and highly shiny and rectangular in shape. It was moving from north to south so slow it almost appeared immobile in the sky at first.
It seemed to retained its rectangular shape even though at times it would very slowly spin on its vertical axis and you could see that it indeed seemed to have very thin sides. Almost like you would imagine a rectangular piece of “cling-wrap”.
But the strange thing was: How did it maintain its perfect rectangular shape and appearent same altitude constant? even though it at times, rotated perfectly on its vertical axis? I observed the object for about 1 hour and it only seemed to have moved about a mile from my reference point. Very little(if any) light and variable surface winds at the time. I pointed it out to friends of mine and we all saw it.
