Missile test / L.A. “UFO” – what we saw from the Salton Sea on Bombay Beach

Missile test / L.A. “UFO” – what we saw from the Salton Sea on Bombay Beach 1

Eye witness testimony: Standing on Bombay Beach (a wasteland in its own right) taking long exposures and timelapses, we saw a flaming….something that looked like it was coming toward us.

When it exploded and kept expanding, I realized it wasn’t a plane on fire but thought there was a good chance that a chemical or nuclear weapon had detonated over Los Angeles/Southern California. All I could do was stand there and realize life as I knew it could be over in a few minutes. So I did what anyone else would do. I took pictures of it.

// when video runs var done = false; function onPlayerStateChange(event) { if (event.data == YT.PlayerState.ENDED || done === true) { //insert appropriate modal (or whatever) below startmashvipo(); } }; /* Stop the video */ function stopVideo() { player.stopVideo(); done = true; }

The first few frames of the initial “white” explosion/blast/whatever are missing because for the life of me as I watched what I thought was maybe the end of the world, I forgot entirely how to use my camera.

I haven’t seen images like this on the news or in social media pics, what we saw was very different from what folks in L.A. saw.
