Mysterious Lights In The Sky Spotted Above OC, Camp Pendleton
CBSLA.com) ^ | June 19, 2014 3:10 PM

CAMP PENDLETON (CBSLA.com) — Did you see strange lights in the night sky?

Our KCAL9 Street Team mobilized Wednesday night after receiving several reports of orange lights appearing various parts of southern Orange County.

Viewer “Marilyn” sent KCAL9 video footage that apparently showed two round and apparently parallel objects pulsing and hovering near Trabuco Canyon around 10:15 p.m.

Several viewers reported spotting similar objects over Camp Pendleton. Authorities at the U.S. Marine Corps base confirmed there was live fire training last night.

Similar sightings were also reported in northern San Diego County and parts of Riverside County.

It wasn’t immediately clear what the source of the lights was.

Check out the video above and decide for yourself.

...

Officials at Camp Pendleton and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar told Eyewitness News Thursday morning that the lights didn’t have anything to do with their bases.

The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement, “We had no unusual aircraft activity in Southern California last night.”

Thought of that -- but can a couple of balloons with candles be seen from Orange County to Riverside County and to San Diego County?

That is a very wide area.

Just do a search on “sky lantern” at Amazon, there are a ton of hits.

My neighbor had some. The fuel is like the firestarters for charcoal like you use with BGE cookers.

Might depend on how they are constructed. A light can be seen for miles against a near black background at night.

We are in the midwest and this last weekend my husband and a friend witnessed 6 lights in the sky following each other, then one by one the lights suddenly went out. We’re thinking drones?

For background, the distance from Trabuco Canyon in Orange County to Murrieta in Riverside County is about 15 miles as the crow flies — and there is a mountain range in between.

Camp Pendleton is South of San Clemente, which is itself south of San Juan Capistrano. You can see it on the map by scrolling down.

Pendleton is about 15 miles from both Trabuco Canyon and Murietta.

Parachute flares used for illumination of night maneuvers or artillery practice. The one witness even saw the smoke trail of the flare. If there are multiples together the smoke trails are easy to see, if you’ve got binocs you can see the parachute the flare hangs from reflecting light from the flare. This is typical nighttime stuff over a Marine base, saw lots of this at LeJeune when I was a kid back in the 60’s.

They burn a bright golden orange color.

These people live near Pendelton and they’ve never seen an illumination flare before?

Do you really think -- with all the attention in Southern California on wildfires in this drought -- that people are going to send burning candles up in the air in balloons down there?

Do you know how much trouble they would get into if they were found out?

Seems from the article we can expect an earthquake near Ft. Pendleton. We shall see. Mt. Adams in Washington has also had some unexplained lights in the past.

I’ve seen the candle balloons getting launched by the dozen, last year, Grand Haven beach. There is simply no way for those to cause a flap of any kind. They look good-sized close up, but turn into a dim, and quickly nearly invisible dot, rising higher and higher and out of sight, until the flame dies, at which time they cease to be luminous at all and just sink to the ground.

The military may have been using large flares for some kind of training or readiness, and either deny knowledge of it, or the spokesperson asked for comment might not have any idea that it went on anyway.

The fact that these kinds of unidentified nocturnal lights (to use the term coined by J. Allen Hynek) have been reported since long before the US military used flares for anything, or had aircraft, or bases out west, or indeed before the US (leave alone the US miltary) existed, shouldn’t dissuade everyone from the idea of a mundane explanation. /s

“Seems from the article we can expect an earthquake near Ft. Pendleton.”

The Corps doesn’t have forts. We have camps. This is the reason for the unusually high smores budget in the USMC.

Respectfully, the first thing the nutbags out here do, when conditions are right, is to head to the hills with a Bic lighter, and cause havoc. Been here since 1981, not an uncommon occurence :(

I used to make hydrogen and fill ballons with it, carefully tie on a greased cotton string, light it and release. It was fairly low key.

Well I then graduated when a bottle of helium showed up at work. I would fill one balloon with helium, and then another with acetylene. the 2 balloons were then tethered to each other, then the bottom acetylene balloon got the greased string treatment.

It was a balancing act getting the “fuse” just right but after some trial and error I got it.

Releasing these at night you could see the flame at the end of the string as is wigwagged back and forth... timing these from the flash to the arrival of the explosion, I was able to determine they were about 2 to 3 miles away, and judging from the angle above the horizon about 2500’ elevation.

That wasn’t good enough though.

The final product used helium for lift in a large garbage bag... and the explosive charge was a stoiciometric mixture of acetylene and oxygen... which yielded a very VERY violent and very loud explosion.

This was pre 9/11... if I did this now-a-days... I would be the last one 0bama would set free from Gitmo.

the grand finale was the night when it was plastered all over the news that tbe space shuttle and the Russian space station MIR were disclosed as being visible that night passing overhead in tandem as the space shuttle approached MIR to dock.

I made up 2 aerial devices and launched them about 10 minutes before the published time of the flyover... so anyone that was within 30 miles of me that was curious would be looking up for 2 dots of light...

BOOM!

I came to enjoy being waterboarded.

Pinging the unidentified aerial phenomena list (ufo) ..

May 8, 1950-This is one of the most famous UFO pictures ever taken.
Photographed by Paul Trent, and first witnessed by his wife.
They were published in a local newspaper in McMinnville, Oregon.
Shortly thereafter, the Trent photos were published in Life magazine edition of June 26, 1950.
The rest is history.
(These photos have been deemed authentic for over 50 years. The analysis of the McMinnville photos by Dr.Bruce Maccabee PhD, can be found here = http://brumac.8k.com/trent1.html )

Those interested in the uap/ufo ping list, please Freepmail
LasVegasDave (freepmail works best)
if you would like your name added to the list.
( Approximately 200+ freepers are currently on the ping list ).

Question for you: what were the wind speed and direction in your area last night?
