The twin moons of Debs Park explained

A pair of white orbs floating over the top of Debs Park in Montecito Heights attracted a lot of attention last night.  Photographer Martha Benedict took a shot of the two objects, which were lighting balloons being used to illuminate a film shoot near the pond at the top of the park, according to her post on the ASNC Alert.

Anthony Manzano of the LA-32 Neighborhood Council said the balloons and crew were there to shoot scenes for the “Parenthood” television series.  “Thank goodness for Hollywood, and this [wonderful] view as a gift for the [holidays],” he said in an email.

There will be more filming today. What should these temporary celestial bodies be called? Montecito & Hermon?
