Now which one of you were around then (and remember).
What is your opinion of what happened? The USAF now says it was meteorological balloons (those balloons sure were a problem for the public, were they not?).
said by Men in Black :
At the end of the war, the Japanese stated that they did not send planes over the area at the time of this alert, although submarine-launched aircraft were subsequently used over Seattle. A careful study of the evidence suggests that meteorological balloonsknown to have been released over Los Angeles may well have caused the initial alarm.
I guess there is a movie coming out about the incident. Perhaps they know the Truth and are going to expose it! Like has been done with bigfoot, Roswell, the Kennedy assassination, and so forth.
The whole area was nervous leading up to that night. Three nights before, a Japanese sub fired 25 shells into an oil field north of Santa Barbara. -- This exhibit temporarily closed for cleaning and restoration.
