UFO maneuvering directly in LAX final approach

While standing outside, I looked up and to the west to watch the aircraft on final approach to LAX. I am a pilot and always interested in aircraft. The commercial traffic here is about 3,000 to 4,000 AGL as they approach straight in to LAX. While looking at one aircraft on approach my eyes were drawn to a spherical reflective object directly above it approximately 1,500 - 2,000 feet. It was highly reflective and pulling very tight circles, very fast. Far too fast to be a bird. Too tight to be a conventional aircraft. I watched this object do this for about two minutes before it shot to the SW at incredible speed. My mind struggled to comprehend what it just saw. Whatever it was it was maneuvering directly in the flightpath of numerous aircraft in some of the most congested airspace in the U.S.
