The plane was descending into Los Angeles about 5:30 p.m. on October 7, 2014, when the object was first seen.
“I was in the back of the plane looking out the window,” the witness stated.”As we descended we passed a silver sphere.”
The witness described the object’s location very close to the plane.
“It was about three feet past the wing and about three feet below the wing. It was 5:30 p.m. and still daylight. The object reflected the sunlight.”
The witness described the object.
“It was about four feet around. I got a good look at it because I saw it coming and watched it as we passed it. Definitely not a balloon. I was pretty scared after I saw it because it was so close to the wing. If we had hit it, we would have crashed.”
