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 wasnt immediately clear what the source of the lights was.
Check out the video above and decide for yourself.

Mysterious lights in sky spotted by Southern California residents
Thursday, June 19, 2014
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.”
No need - the aliens are always welcome at the White House.
Especially illegal aliens.
(As long as they’re Liberals/Marxists.)
And here we thought drone technology limited to govt use.
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.
Okay, well here’s a message to anyone thinking of sending flaming objects into the sky over tinder dry SoCal.
What do you make of this: http://www.openminds.tv/two-california-ufo-witnesses-10-miles-apart-describe-strange-lights/28397
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?
See post 13. Had not thought of sky lanterns.
An explanation about all those mysterious lights are here:
Never mind. My husband said they were very high up and going two by two.
Probably recently elected Republican's.....................
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?

Note: These lights were spotted in the general area of the long quiet Elsinore Fault http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elsinore_Fault_Zone
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?
See post #11
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 think on average I look to the skies as much as the other guy.
Why is it I never get to see these things?
Must be I’m not looking hard enough!
It’s Russian jets.
Only one. The other two were NK and Chinese.
As dinner, or for dinner?
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.

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.
that is a classic parachute deployed fusee (flare)... they extinguished one by one in a line, right?

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...
I came to enjoy being waterboarded.
Known best to many of us in the context of gasoline engine air-fuel combustion mixtures, where a ratio of 14.7:1 is ideal.
I HAVE THE BEST FOOTAGE
Filmed with my HD camorder with zoom.
This one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V-XcJagJ0w is very clear and definitely shows what looks to be smoke trailing away from one of the objects.
Question for you: what were the wind speed and direction in your area last night?
I double checked with my husband and he said they actually were traveling two by two side by side.
Thanks for the ping!
Is that the N7?
