Alien Underwater Objects May Be Connected to the Battle of Los Angeles

In the middle of the night on February 24, 1942, less than three months after the United States joined World War II, alarms were raised throughout Los Angeles county. Citizens turned off their lights as a complete blackout was ordered. Thousands of air raid wardens were called in to their positions. At 3:16 am, the 37th Coast Artillery Brigade began firing at at least one reported aircraft. Over the course of the next hour, the brigade fired more than 1,400 shells. At 4:14 am, the "all clear" was sounded. Five civilians were killed as an indirect result of the anti-aircraft fire, three died in car accidents in the chaos that followed, and two died of heart attacks, caused by the sheer stress of the hour-long battle.

 

Hours later, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox released a statement that, contrary to popular belief, the Japanese had not attacked the US. He claimed that the incident was a false alarm due to "war nerves." However, many news outlets suspected a government-wide cover up. The Long Beach Independent wrote, "There is a mysterious reticence about the whole affair and it appears that some form of censorship is trying to halt discussion on the matter." Representative Leland Ford of Santa Monica called for Congress to investigate the incident and the alleged cover-up, saying, "...none of the explanations so far offered removed the episode from the category of 'complete mystification.'"

 

More than seven decades later, we still don't have an answer. Theories abound about a secret base in Mexico, or advanced Japanese submarines that could carry planes. But one of the most prevalent theories is that of alien visitation, partially based on this photograph run the next day in the Los Angeles Times, which UFOlogists claim clearly depicts a UFO with searchlights:

UFOlogists are collecting evidence to support this theory to this day. Scott Waring, writer at UFO Sightings Daily, recently reported that he found underwater structures off the coast of Santa Monica that may be alien in origin. There were several long structures and then many smaller round objects. He described the latter objects as "16 round objects in two groups of eight that look like disks at the bottom of the ocean…in flight formation."

While he found the smaller objects himself, the below picture of the longer structures were emailed to him. He stated, "The long structures are all pointing to each other and in the center between [the long structures] all the area is pixelated and obscured…thus evidence that something is being hidden from the publics view. Most likely and entrance area to an underwater alien base. This could be an ancient one and not necessarily a currently used base." As a result of their apparent alien origin and their location, Waring speculates that these objects could have been used by the aliens of the Battle of Los Angeles.

These pictures's connection to the Battle of Los Angeles is not corroborated by any other sources, but the conspiracy theories about the mysterious incident will justifiably live on.
