The Battle of Los Angeles | Retired Military Officials and UFO Experts Discussed the 1942 Incident

Battle of Los Angeles

UFO Experts Debate Strange Sighting in SM; 'Battle: LA' Looms

     It's Feb. 24, 1942, and America is still on alert following the bombing of Pearl Harbor two and a half months prior.

Air-raid sirens blare, waking people throughout Los Angeles. The unexplained event known as the Battle of Los Angeles—or, the Great Los Angeles Air Raid—has begun.

Unidentified flying objects are spotted in the skies above Santa Monica Beach and Redondo Beach starting around 2 a.m. They are flying between 9,000 and 18,000 feet high in the sky, and witnesses see between nine and 25 of them over Santa Monica Bay. Some appear to be traveling fast, at speeds upward of 200 miles per hour. Others seem to be moving more slowly.

Search lights are cast across the night sky. At 3:16 a.m., the 37th Coast Artillery Brigade responds, firing anti-aircraft shells at the UFOs. . . .
