From my front yard in W Torrance I observed partial path of 4 moving dim starlight starlike points of light West/SW LA sky ~30 deg 11:50 pm 9/7/15, 3 were staggered straight inline, 1 separate, viewed for ~10 sec separate point object offset from 3 inline which moved on slightly different path. Speed & nature of movement weird / suspicious, invoking eerie feeling. All objects disappeared over Pacific Ocean at high altitude and distance. I routinely observe night sky. Atmosphere was clear w/ a bit of haze. I have an Engineering Science background. ID: Appeared as Not airplane nor satellite nor comet, which I observe regularly. Found no online correlation querying just after midnight.
