The LED Sphere in Los Angeles evokes both admiration and contention. As demonstrated in a video shared on social media, the object is capable of "making eye contact" with passing airplanes.

This grand, futuristic concert hall located in Los Angeles has been in operation for a few weeks, eliciting a gamut of emotions among the city's residents and tourists. It took five years and two billion dollars to build this phenomenal structure. Housed inside is the world's largest LED screen, sprawled across approximately, 161459 square feet, complemented by an immersive audio experience from 164 state-of-the-art speakers.

Remarkably, The Sphere is not just an immense, modern concert hall. It is fitted with LED diodes across its surface, enabling it to put on dazzling light shows. Given its towering presence, The Sphere is not only observable from the Los Angeles city streets and windows but also from an aerial perspective. As depicted on social media, this view is truly stunning.

A video was shared on Twitter showcasing a view from the cockpit of one of the planes flying over Los Angeles. The caption accompanying the post mentions that "The Sphere identifies and interacts with passing airplanes". The Sphere, taking the form of a large yellow ball with 'eyes' that seem to follow and react to the passing aircraft, must indeed make a striking impression, perhaps bordering on eerie. It gives off the feeling of a sentient being attempting to connect with the aircraft pilot.

In addition to admiration, The Sphere's functionalities have sparked concerns. Responding to the mesmerizing light displays, an internet commenter queried, "Does this distract pilots? I couldn't stop watching it," indicating the Sphere's potential to grab and hold viewers' attention.
