California has been known for its beautiful beaches, delightful foods, lovely mountains, and deserts. However, not too many people know that California is a UFO hotspot.
The state recorded over 12,000 reported sightings of UFOs, according to the data from National UFO Reporting Center and first-of-its-kind book UFO Sightings Desk Reference, which analyzes such sightings.
According to the Center, the latest sightings in the state happened at Van Nuys and Miramar, in Diego County.
On March 17, someone claimed to have noticed multiple items flying in formation and moving very fast without a sound in the night sky before vanishing behind some clouds.
According to the reporting witness, he was familiar with various typical items in the evening sky, and the items he reported were too silent and too fast to be of terrestrial origin.
On March 21, an unnamed witness reported to the center that they saw the rapid blinking light in Miramar. They said that the light appeared to grow. At first, it looked one light to them until the formation became visible, the witness stated. It further wrote that it traveled low at a fast speed and made a U-turn in the opposite direction.
The fascination and curiosity over UFOs and aliens have built a cultural phenomenon that has translated to movies, television shows, and books.
People have uploaded unexplained sightings to the internet, mostly to YouTube. In November 2015, video blogger Julien Solomita had spotted a bright cone of light streaking over Van Nuys and recorded it with his camera.
Solomita posted the video to YouTube titled “Massive Blue UFO over Los Angeles.” The footage also made the rounds on social media and got over 2.5 million views on YouTube.
However, U.S. Navy officials later claimed that the spectacle was caused by their submarine off the coast when it launched an unarmed missile, which was one in a series of unannounced tests.
