"I work in Beverly Hills on the 8th floor of our building, and I was talking to a co-worker when I saw a massive orange light fly West to Northeast over the Hollywood hills. It was like a shooting star but ridiculously close. Am I the only one who saw this? Am I going crazy here? No one believes me at the office and I'm getting pissed." It happened around 10:40 a.m. he said in a follow up e-mail. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, nothing unusual has been reported.
