    I saw an identical one while flying over the Florida Everglades at night in a small plane, and have my wingman to back me up who also saw it. We flew right past it. It was fucking HUGE - like larger than any aircraft I've ever seen.

    I figure it's a military UAV test design that hasn't been released to the public yet, although they are "accidentally" seen quite often.

    "One of them" fear-mongerers.
    Those UAVs have been spotted by several pilots who fly over the glades at night. When I mentioned it at the airport, I was surprised at how many others had seen the same thing near the NASA Space Center...we were about 40 miles from there when we saw it.

    Are UAV's cleared for operation over populated areas in the US, and for sharing commercial airspace?

    Good question. The one I saw was ~20 miles from any populated area.
    And the one shown in that video - knowing the size of that thing - was probably 30-40 miles from the people filming it.

    I can't make heads nor tails out of that video. You guys see a V-shaped thing there? I see a silver splotch.

    The El Cajon "lights" made a similar splash a while ago. Turns out what was earnestly reported as a UFO (as in the extraterrestrial kind) was a weather balloon hoax, holding up a triangular shaped metal lattice with three red flares at the points.


    I think "fishy" when the only stuff you see on an "event" like this is found on UFO websites.

    Any chance it could be one of those Stratellite thingamabobs?

    Even so, you know how commercial airspace in the US is mapped. Huntington Beach, CA, is very populated, just south of Long Beach, with many General Aviation airports. So I'll remain a bit skeptical for the moment, if you'll allow me.

    If I knew the exact location of the people filming I could look up the charts and determine more accurately whether the thingy was in controlled or uncontrolled airspace, and which type of controlled airspace it was. I doubt it was in controlled airspace though, unless it was cleared through the local controlling agency, ARTCC, or the FAA. Otherwise it woulda been intercepted by fighter jets.

    My bet is on a silver kite with 13 light bulbs, battery powered.

    There is NOTHING in that video that suggests whether that was a small object relatively close (say a mile) or a large object that was far.

    You guys in Southern California, surely there must have been stuff in the press about this.

    I am smelling HOAX, HOAX, HOAX.

    Huntington is < 10 miles from the Los Alamitos Air Force Base & Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station and only ~30 miles from Camp Pendelton.

    It's pretty common to get flyovers of all kinds in that area.

    And ARTCC is directly out of LGB which is about 12 miles from Huntington - I think, but it may be out of LA. I think LGB controls all local traffic for that part of the South Bay - but I may be wrong.

    Yeah, I think the ARTCC for Long Beach/Huntington is out of LA, but I'm not sure. Bottom line, I'm slow to get all excited about shimmering objects somebody videotapes badly with a private camcorder.

    I am more interested in your own anecdotal story about your observation over the Everglades. But if it was a UAV, why test it there? The Everglades are a busy approach for Miami and Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale. There are so many other better remote locations. Well, I'm just guessing... icon_question.gif

    I've already made me a Gaga-inspired tinfoil telephone-hat, ahem... just in case... whatever they are used for

    Well I kinda call everything in central FL the Everglades. It was a few miles NE of Lake Okeechobee at 3000'. We saw it when we at the south tip of the Lake and thought it was an airliner. When we'd watched it stay in the same spot over 30 minutes while we approached it, we knew it was something else, so we diverted course to check it out. Sure enough, it was this gigantic triangle thing with lights on all three corners...hovering.

    As for one, I would love to believe in the existence of UFOs commuting across the Universe as easily as we travel to work each morning. Maybe such an idea would give the likes of Erich von Daniken great credibility in the face of those dull, "old duffers" who occupy the archaeology profession, and in turn, dismiss Daniken's theory of ancient space gods who tampered with the genes of our ape-men ancestors, as a pseudo-science, without any of these "duffers" giving a moment's consideration.
    If it weren't for a problem or two.
    Other than our own sun, the nearest star to us is Proxime Centauri, which is 4.2 light years away, or 24,800,000,000,000 miles distant.
    One of our fastest space vehicles ever built was the US/German Helios B, launched January 1976 and traveling at 149,125 miles an hour.
    To cover the distance to Proxime Centauri in this velocity would take nearly 455,314 years. And that is to the nearest star, a faint object without any evidence of an orbiting planet.
    But assuming that these space travelers whose IQ are much more advanced than ours, and have technology to match, could construct a vehicle which can travel at a speed just under the speed of light, (according to Newton's theories), does it seem strikingly odd that such time and effort was spent just to take a moments glance of a beach in California? And that after more than four years of space travel - and their know-how have given them the ability to survive such an environment - I would have thought that they would have landed and after disembarking, say hello and ask if they can try out the surf-board!
    Oh well, there is always another day...

    How come these damn aliens don't know that NYC is the capital of earth and even pushing hard for the center of the universe title.

    What's up wid that? Why don't they ever come here?

    Me too. And, to think, here they were just off of surfer central USA...with all those iPhone 4 5 megapixel cameras and there is not one high resolution, non blurry digital images of the "thingy."

    Well, hovering puts it into a different category altogether, and not a UAV of which I am aware. Craft with wings or that are a lifting body require motion through the air in order to create lift, as well you know, or else a rocket propelled by thrust, or a rotary wing aircraft. So now we're into something else, would you not concur?
