Numerous people in southern California spotted what they believed to be unidentified flying objects, UFOs, but the Navy is taking credit for the lights in the sky on Sunday night.
Numerous videos posted to social media show lights appear and disappear in the night sky.
“They also reenter in Florida, not California,” a group of onlookers said in a video. “No, they take off in California and land in Florida,” they said while confused about the supposed UFOs’ flight pattern.
But it turns out the lights were not aliens or unidentified military craft.
They were Navy paratroopers with flares arriving at Snapdragon Stadium for the National Women’s Soccer League semifinal playoff match between San Diego Wave FC and OL Reign.
The U.S. Navy Parachute Team, the “Leap Frogs,” warned San Diegans before the game that the UFOs that would appear above the city in the night sky would just be them jumping into the game with flares.
“If you see UFOs in the San Diego sky tonight around 6:20 p.m., it’s probably us commuting to the San Diego Wave FC game,” the Leap Frogs said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.
