Lights Appeared in Pattern Over Los Angeles, California then Disappear Suddenly

Submitter Description: I was walking out to my garage and noticed these strange lights in the sky. I ran inside to grab my phone and they had not moved when I returned. I captured a photo, and after sending it to a friend, I looked back up and they were gone. They did not fade gradually or drift off, they were simply there one moment and gone the next. I struggled to find an explanation for what it was, and still do. I’m also of a scientific mind and believe there is probably a logical explanation that does not involve aliens. I lost sight by simply looking away for a moment.
