LONG BEACH — Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane!
What the heck is it?
That's the question ABC-7 News has posed to Long Beach police and local military experts after getting a copy of a tape that shows an unidentified object flitting through our skies last year.
The tape was made Dec. 25 by Long Beach Police Department helicopter pilots who caught sight of the glowing blob while on patrol around 11:30 p.m., said Sgt. David Cannan.
Because the officers could not identify the object, they took video that was forwarded to a local military base for closer scrutiny.
"We just asked them to take a look at it, in case it was a possible security issue," Cannan said.
It was not, however, classified as an invasion by little green men, silver ones or any other kind of imaginable space beast, the sergeant assured.
Julia Pfeiffer, a producer at Channel 7, said their news piece will take a look at the possible explanations for the item and the story will air either today or Friday.
"We are approaching it fairly seriously," she said, "but we're not doing this to scare people."
