That is a balloon, and it cannot be anything else because of the behavior, and may I remind you I live about the same position as the person taping
this "object" and we are in Los Angeles, within miles of airforce and other military, and in a city with 20 news stations. If this was anything
other than a regular baloon or kite, it would have been:
1) Taped by every single news station in town, and surrounded by 20 news helicopters.
2) Shot down or at the very LEAST patrolled by military aircraft.
You don't enter Los Angeles airspace without the Los Angeles Center seeing you on radar, and that is NOT an aircraft or UFO.
We have 12 million people here. NO WAY this was the only person who saw it and I'll bet you if it looked like anything other than a kite or balloon
it was reported hundreds of times.

I would argue the contrary, in a friendly way, of course.
Reporting of sightings or even close encounters are unlikely to make TV news to even begin thinking about sending a camera team out of the building to
look up. Advertisers, don't you know. They don't like it.
It's just the way TV news operates. They don't scramble on reports of UFO's, period.
I saw a giant fireball once, while sitting in peak hour evening traffic. It was a perfect very slow moving sphere that lit up the entire night sky for
several seconds and must've been seen by many thousands of people sitting in their cars facing the same way in the same traffic jam. If it was a
meteor then there would've been one almighty explosion. It disappeared behind some hills in to the ocean, silently.
Do you think there was even one mention of it in the news? On the local radio? In the local newspaper?
It can come as something of a shock when you have an experience/sighting and you report it or describe it, and you're looked at like you're Charles
Fort in a hospital ward.
