Description/Notes: 
Burbank, California. Location precision: estimated within a 7 km radius. Thank you. I live in LA and work in Burbank. On my lunch walks yesterday and today I have been walking through this endless stream of butterflies. At first I thought it was moths, and localized to the parking lot of my office building, but this AM I heard on the radio about sightings all around the area. AND on my walk today it was the entire neighborhood the entire time and they’re all flying at near ground level, so you walk right through them. It's really quite magical.
