UFO Over San Diego Unexplained, TV Station Uncooperative

On the evening of April 28th, a number of San Diego residents witnessed a UFO with multiple multicolored flashing lights hovering over the city. Photographs were sent the local NBC television affiliate NBC 7 San Diego, which reported on the event and later released a video taken by one of its camera operators of the UFO over San Ysidro, a southern district of San Diego near the US-Mexico border. The station said it contacted the military for help in identifying the UFO but had not received a response. It’s now over a week later and not only has there been no further information about the UFO, the station is refusing to respond to questions. What did they find out? Why are they uncooperative?

Witnesses said the UFO appeared near the Coronado Bridge over San Diego Bay connecting San Diego with Coronado, California. KNSD talked to witness Larry Fox, who took a picture of the UFO, described it as looking like red, blue and green strobe lights and doubted it was a plane or drone.

It was a series of flashing lights. If it was a plane, it would have moved.

After days of no additional information coming out, The Huffington Post contacted the station and was told by a reporter that she was instructed by station management not to give out any information, not even her name.

Some people speculate that the UFO could be a lens flare inside the camera or that one or more of the lights are from a different source and were combined inside the camera. UFO experts point out that these things can be verified but the camera operator who took the video is unavailable for comments.

Why is the local NBC TV station shutting down all questions about the UFO and refusing to even identify reporters or photographers associated with the video and story? What was the response from military officials when NBC 7 San Diego itself contacted them the day the UFO was spotted? Is the military behind the information shutdown? Does it have anything to do with the close proximity to the US-Mexico border?

Questions, questions, questions.
