Out There stories relating to "California UFO"

Thursday, December 1, 2016

This object and light form appeared above the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles on November 29. The witness reported to MUFON that he had taken the pictures without noticing the object, only the light form.

There was also a less clear event in Northridge, CA on the same night, and we have unconfirmed reports of other events in the Los Angeles area as well.

The Hollywood Hills sighting is graded A.

This high strangeness photo was taken by a witness in Alameda, California on December 29. The sighting was a close one, and the object was flashing rapidly and moving too erratically to be a drone. Shortly, a second, similar object appeared. The sighting was reported to MUFON and is on their database.

Rapidly flashing UFOs are fairly rare, but not unknown. A number of flashing UFOs were observed over the UK in the latter half of 2015, including this one in Warwickshire.

This is an image of one of the objects observed in Alameda on the 29th, taken by the witness:

A note from your Out There editor: we have experienced a long period of low UFO sightings, which has been filled in by the usual hoaxes, mislabeled stars, meteors, etc. However, over the next five years the number of actual unknowns in our skies will gradually increase. Out There will be watching!

Unless this video is a CGI effect, it is one of the strangest meteors ever recorded. It could also be a satellite re-entry that ejects some sort of object that is able to power away from the dying satellite in the opposite direction. Frankly, it could also be an unknown object in some sort of distress that ejects a smaller object which moves off in the opposite direction.

A witness got in touch with Unknowncountry.com to describe the low flyover of a triangle UFO in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego last night at approximately 8:15 PM. The object was extremely low and very large. It was a dark color and he could see that it appeared to be solid. It was outlined with pale orange lights. One of the lights detached itself as the object flew directly over the witness's head, moved in a circle, and joined another of the lights. The object was absolutely silent, and so far there are no other witness reports and no known video.

San Diego is a major area for sightings of black triangles and also an important US military installation with large Marine and Navy presences. The source linked here details a number of other recent triangle sightings in the San Diego area.

If you have a sighting, report it to Whitley@Strieber.com or use the 'Report Sighting or Encounter' link on our homepage.

The great majority of UFO photos taken during the day are actually birds snapped at the moment their wings are closed. In this case, though, the object appears to be metallic and circular or oval. This is a probable unknown.

Jim Martin of Newport Beach, CA, captures lots of video of unknowns, mostly from his apartment balcony. Here is what he says about his latest work:
"Filmed on March 18 thru March 26, 2014 from my deck in Newport Beach CA.  The video covers 20+ UFO  captures filmed during the day and night.  We highlighted select clips with digital filters to enhance the images.  The video features various kinds of Orbs, Rods, Cigar ufos, a Morphing UFO, an Orb with Forcefield, and a large Swarm of Cigar UFOs filmed over Newport Beach.
"The footage was captured with a Canon 7D camera and Canon Telephoto Lens EF 100-400mm, with 2 extender, and a Sony HX3-NX3 camcorder, with Gen 3 LRS Scout for Night Vision."

There are many insects and birds in his videos, but the objects he concentrates on are unknowns, usually high-flying and fast. These are seen all over the world nowadays, and there are a number of videographers capturing imagery, especially in the US and Australia.What they are is anybody's guess. Some of the more exotic forms, in particular, look like living creatures of some unknown kind. The high-flying orbs would appear to be classic UFOs. They could also be ultra-fast classified military aircraft flying at the edge of space.

A helicopter and a USAF jet have been spotted chasing UFOs in Orange County, California. Want to know why we don't have contact? Simple. We shake our spears at them. As long as we continue to act like primitive tribesmen, they will continue to treat us as such.

These objects were recorded by an Unknowncountry reader on December 25 in Newport Beach, CA. They are part of an enormous UFO wave that has been sweeping the western United States starting in November.

Quite a spate of sightings across California over New Years. We got six reports on Unknowncountry.com's reporting page, and all of them described orange balls of light that hovered, then shot away at high speed. The story sourced here indicates that they were seen up and down the state.

Finally, a real sighting. This object was observed and photographed by an amateur astronomer and seen by many thousands of witnesses two nights in a row. It is an authentic unknown for the following reasons: 1, it was seen by many witnesses; 2, an astronomer (amateur, in this case) observed it through a telescope and noted anomalous characteristics such as color change that would be very hard to accomplish with a lighted balloon or quadcopter; 3, it did not fade out or suddenly disappear, but rather darted off, as noted by the astronomer.

At present, the internet is filling up with the latest in hoaxes: the lighted quadcopter being flown at night. They're easily identifiable and, frankly, to someone like your Out There editor, another reminder of just how moronic the hoaxers are, and how dull their output is.

The UFOs in this video could easily be CGI inclusions. Given the usual low resolution, there's basically no way to tell. The ship seems to be having a fire, but whatever happened, it wasn't enough to attract the interest of California's voracious news media. So who knows? The most interesting thing about the video is the comment from a probable fake YouTuber, 'Lulzim Ademi.' Apparently he's never done anything except add the comment 'UFO my ass' to this video. So, is he real or a product of the massive social engineering effort to create the impression (false) that the public is hostile to UFOs? There are literally hundreds of these characters on YouTube.

Singer Ryan Adams reported that he and other motorists saw a huge UFO being chased by helicopters, but then deleted his tweets about the subject from his Twitter feed. He tweeted "three cops were tearing ass in its direction in oncoming traffic. Thing was huge." And again, "Choppers in the air near it."
These tweets were soon removed from his profile. So far, we have received no other reports of this event.

This object hovered over Fresno California for hours today, remaining motionless despite 10-15 MPH winds in the area. It is not a balloon, parachute, parasail, or ultralight because it was unaffected by these winds. It is probably not a kite because of its altitude. Local TV station KPMH asked the Federal Aviation Administration, the Fresno Air Terminal and the Army National Guard Wednesday for information, but they refused to provide an explanation for the object, exactly as they did a few days ago when a plane was looping over Quincy, Mass.

A UFO was sighted low over West Hollywood in Los Angeles, headed toward Venice Beach. This seems like a straightforward witness report, but there is no video.

There are numerous UFO reports coming in from South Texas and Southern California at present. This video of pulsating lights over Beverly Hills is an example. The lights are not normal aircraft and do not appear to be floating like balloons. This could well be a video of unknown objects.

San Bernadino County, California has been having extensive UFO sightings for months. Most of them have sounded like candle lantern sightings, but this report states that one or more of the objects appeared at altitude, meaning that it could not have been a candle lantern, which would have had to have been launched while lit.

Add to the sightings of Whitley Strieber and others, and you could say that there was a bit of a flap taking place in California. No reason to doubt the authenticity of this video.

This object was taped last night over Fresno, California. It could be a plane, but the running lights are not in an FAA approved configuration, or don't appear to be. We got a rash of UFO reports from California in the past few days, including one from Whitley Strieber. So far, this is the only footage that has appeared.

Multiple witness UFO sightings are fairly unusual, and this one must have been quite noticeable to have attracted so many witnesses. Unfortunately, the photo that was taken is not good, but there is no reason to doubt the accounts. Silver cylinders are a relatively common UFO type.

This report of a diamond shaped UFO from two days before the Canary Islands discovery, illustrates how common this configuration is.

Later in this video, aircraft of some sort appear to take an interest in it.

Another night, another low-flying triangular UFO. These have been seen in the US at least since the 1970s, so they are unlikely to be spy planes or drones. But what are they? In his book the Grays, Whitley Strieber has a description of a fascinating aircraft called the TR, which is a spy plane. It is actually a blimp, created and deployed back in the seventies. So, is it real? We asked him and got this response: "Fiction, but it shouldn't be. It's a good idea for a close-approach surveillance aircraft and it could be built, but not until battery technology produces lightweight, high power batteries that are the craft's motive power. It's probably 20 years out." Unless, of course, that technology exists somewhere behind the wall of secrecy.

Unfortunately, there is no video of this incident where two witnesses sitting in a truck at one in the morning observed a group of lights in the sky that appeared to be moving erratically around a dark central object. When the object seemed to drop down into a nearby woods, they fled the scene in the truck.

Daylight UFOs are appearing somewhat more frequently in recent months. This group over Victorville California is typical.

This could be some sort of lantern, but the light source seems brighter than a candle. It is not an aircraft, and the overcast rules out a satellite or star.

Yet more orbs seen over California.

Similar clusters of objects have been reported over Mexico and Poland in recent years. What they are is unknown.

There appears to be some heavy duty UFO activity taking place in California. Big Bear is not that far from Joshua Tree.

Whitley Strieber sent us this with this comment, "We used to hear footsteps on the porch of our cabin, but no matter how fast we got out there, we never saw anybody. What happened to these folks in Joshua Tree must have been really terrifying."

Close up sightings are becoming more and more common. Even as recently as a year ago, they were rare.
