Hey all--I'm a longtime follower of ATS but never posted anything before. But I had to create an account and post (what I feel) are some interesting aspects of the LA news coverage of the "mystery object" that flew across the Southwest sky at about 7:40 PM tonight.

KCAL9 in LA broke in with a developing story about a "mystery object" that was spotted out in the high desert area. For those not familiar with the region, that's the Riverside/San Bernadino area an hour-plus east of LA. Instead of just dismissing it as a meteor, the reporters immediately started reading viewers' emails of what they'd seen. A lot of the initial emails described it as multi-colored, changing from green to white and to blue. Some said it had a tail, others didn't.

For the past couple of hours now, they've read more viewers emails (from people as far as Palm Springs and Coachella) and posted a YouTube video of the object, which shows the object moving back and forth in the night sky. And instead of just shrugging off the story and insisting it's a meteor, they continue to call it a "mystery object" (note: NOT "ufo"). However, they are saying it's "most likely" a meteor. They had a spokesperson from JPL in Pasadena say it's NOT a satellite/space junk, the FAA admit it wasn't a plane, and they've confirmed with Vandenburg Air Force Base that it wasn't a missile.

The 11 PM news is now leading with the "Mystery In The Sky" story. Saying it's been seen in Vegas and Phoenix. Anchorman is still calling it a "mystery object" and even the lead report is saying it's an "intriguing mystery."

To see this amount of blanket, objective coverage for what is for all intents and purposes a UFO is quite startling to me. I'm used to seeing mainstream media types downplaying or laughing off this kind of story, say it's a meteor/plane/missile and leave it at that. With a few snide and snarky comments about the "tin foil hat" crowd.

Just now the reporter said, "Let's talk to an expert about what we MAY have seen tonight."

Is it me or is this a surprising change in tone about UFO coverage? I feel it is, but that's just my two cents....

Meteors does not navigate like that as seen in the posted video. It is impossible to do because of the speed they achieve and obviously - they does not have any maneuvering capabilities


Now what is this thing? Probably an UFO with unknown origin, but I hope to hear soon about it.

P.S. Looks like it tried to show it self to as many people as he can.

BTW: welcome

sigh. It does seem there are more incidents of UFO sightings lately. However, it is also apparent many people are posting about teh same sightings. I want the real deal or I want to go home. Wait I am home. Imagine that.
