The floating “object” emitted a brilliant white glow for at least 20 minutes and then sank below the surface, reliable policemen reported.
It was about the size of a 14 ft boat, they said.
Officers from Redondo and Hermosa Beach police departments witnessed the phenomenon and reported to their respective headquarters by radio. Life guards were sent to the scene and divers braved the chill waters to attempt to reach the glowing object.
