LOS Angeles’ infamously busy traffic was brought to a standstill after drivers spotted what appeared to be a UFO.

Calls came in to TV stations as far afield as San Diego.
Cars stopped on freeways in Los Angeles so drivers and passengers could take pictures and video.
Among those astonished at the skyward spectacle was will.i.am who posted a video to Twitter and asked his millions of followers: “What is this in the sky?”
