Catalina Island missile, UFO connection?, US Government lying to us again?, 1966 UFO video
When the story of the alleged missile being fired off the coast of southern California northwest of Catalina Island broke recently, I decided to wait for the truth and straight answers. Well, I have not received a straight answer yet.
Reported at the Chicago Tribune November 9, 2010.
“Military and aviation officials say they don’t know who may have launched a mysterious object spotted in the sky late Monday off the Southern California coast, but said that whatever the projectile was, it did not pose a threat to national security.
A KCBS news helicopter spotted what appeared to be a missile traveling through the sky northwest of Catalina Island, about 35 miles west of Los Angeles.
Video posted online by the television station showed a luminous point hurtling through the sky followed by a long contrail.
Officials with the Defense Department, the Navy and the Air Force said did not have any details on the object or its launch site. Pentagon officials said that initial indications were that the military was not involved.
“We are aware of the unexplained contrail reported off the coast of Southern California yesterday evening,” according to a statement from the North American Aerospace Defense Command and the U.S. Northern Command, which operates the U.S. and Canadian missile warning system. “At this time, we are unable to provide specific details but we are working to determine the exact nature of this event.”
“We can confirm that there is no indication of any threat to our nation and we will provide more information as it becomes available,” the statement said.
The Federal Aviation Administration didn’t approve any commercial space launches in the area Monday, said spokesman Ian Gregor.”
Is our government lying to us again?
I am not saying or implying that a UFO was involved. However, after listening to all the denials, I was reminded of an incident from 1966 off the coast of Catalina Island.
UFO Hunters has covered this story and other strange occurences happening around Catalina Island.
Once again, I am not saying that this is UFO related. It is, however, a fact that our government has lied to us about UFOs.
