Location: Hermosa Beach, California
Message: I live in Hermosa Beach, on Hermosa Avenue, close to the water. I saw the same thing you described, it was last night, August 22. Other people were witnessing it with me, and I talk to a friend at work who saw it also, he was further away on Pier avenue. But this round, or ring shaped object was right above my apartment but high up.
It was blue and changed color to green, and had a red light in the middle, which wasn’t always visible. It hung around for about 30 minutes, moving erratically. Definitely nothing I’ve seen before, I couldn’t identify it.
