We were off the coast of San Diego, USS Nimitz carrier strike group was getting ready to go on deployment. At around the evening of the tenth of November 2004, all these contacts were popping up on my radar coverage right off Catalina Island right by Los Angeles. At first there were ten or twelve objects. Watching them on the display was like watching snow fall from the sky. Their relative position didn’t change from each other moving real slow, 28,000 feet at 100 knots, which is extremely weird. Usually things that high don’t travel that slowly because they’ll fall out of the sky‚Ķ
