I walked outside to watch a helicopter passed by. i had noticed a blue light shortly after the helicopter had passed. i went inside to get my binoculars, was able to see the object in my binoculars and tracked it in its north west direction. i live in los angeles planes departing out of lax fly over my home when they’re at 22000′. a plane at that high came in the same frame in my binoculars as the object. that’s when i was able to ascertain the object was higher than the plane. the object continued in a north west direction for approximately 40 seconds before slowly turning to the north. the object then disappeared behind high clouds.
