Skip to comments.Los Angeles Battles UFO In 1942 (69th anniversary of The Battle of Los Angeles)
Posted on 02/25/2011 7:19:40 PM PST by Chi-townChief
At 2:25 a.m. on February 25, 1942, most of the greater Los Angeles region's three million population was awakened by loud air raid sirens that kept wailing for the next thirty-eight minutes.
Powerful searchlights were aimed at a glowing unidentified aerial object over the Santa Monica Mountains that was shaped like a "lozenge."
Moments later, America's 37th Coast Artillery Brigade fired off 1,430 anti-aircraft shells at the UFO.
That was only a couple of months after the Germans attacked Pearl Harbor.
“Hey look...a baby wolf.”
Interesting. Thanks for posting.
I saw the movie, it was really a submarine.
I guess it was a tough target to hit, right?
A little too early for a Japanese Fire Balloon, they started in ‘45.
speaking of UFO’s, I just got this in an email
The year is 1947
> Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years
> ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with
> five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside
> Roswell , New Mexico . This is a well known incident that many say
> has long been covered up by the U..S. Air Force and other federal

> However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948,
> nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:
> Albert A. Gore, Jr.
> Hillary Rodham
> John F. Kerry
> William J. Clinton
> Howard Dean
> Nancy Pelosi
> Dianne Feinstein
> Charles E. Schumer
> Barbara Boxer
> See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses?

> No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!
Viral marketing for a new movie.
Didn’t I see that same UFO in PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE.
A very strange story.
Did we give up after the germans bombed pearl harbor?
Woman Air Raid Warden Gives Testimony:
"It was huge! It was just enormous! And it was practically right over my house. I had never seen anything like it in my life!" she said.
"It was just hovering there in the sky and hardly moving at all. It was a lovely pale orange and about the most beautiful thing you've ever seen. I could see it perfectly because it was very close. It was big!"
"I'll never forget what a magnificent sight it was. Just marvelous. And what a gorgeous color!" she said
Hillary Rodham was born in ‘47 and Bill Clinton in 1946.
Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi were hatched, not born.
Nice Internet legend, but not factual.
Yeah - and this occurred about 5 years before Flying Saucer-mania.
“Watch the skies. Keep watching. Keep looking. Keep watching the skies!”
Several months later, from up on hill in So. CA, we saw what appeared to be multiple nuclear flashes that lite up the entire coastal area out to Catalina Island and all the way inland to about 20 miles....Massive flashes...The flashes seemed to be emanating from approximately bout 50 mile out in the ocean from Huntington Beach, beyond the island... It was a clear, warm summer night....No clouds, no lighting, no rain...
The flashes were so bright and intense, we were waiting for the concussions, which never came.
