An ultra-powerful light beam shone down from what observers described as “a rent in the fabric of the sky”. The light source was far too powerful to be a conventional aircraft, residents who saw the phenomenon said.
A major United States Navy weapons station is just six miles away from Huntington at Seal Beach.
The phenomenon mirrors a darker sky-portal and sinister-looking flying black cube which was captured on video by residents of El Paso in Texas.
El Paso is close to the US Army’s top secret White Sands compound – the USA’s most secret military installation.
White Sands was the location of Robert Oppenheimer’s Manhattan Project which saw the world’s first Atomic bomb detonated there in July 1945.
In Huntington some people said the massive light in the sky looked ‘alien’ and like some sort of ‘portal to another universe’.
But others pointed to the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station – one even suggesting it was a rogue Trident missile.
Seal Beach was opened in 1944 and is charged with arming the US Pacific Fleet. But part of the station’s remit is also to test and assess new and existing weapons – many of which are classified.
Some observers claimed the bizarre super-strong light beam may have been some sort of new weapons system.
SecureTeam10 investigator Tyler says he was sent the video on Twitter by a man simply known as Michael. he added the people who captured the footage were on their way to Huntington Beach, California, at 5.30 AM when they spotted the light.
Tyler adds Michael said the footage “looked literally like a portal, opening up in the sky where we had this strange light which appeared and was shining directly down towards the Earth.
“The source is driving towards the light and you’ll notice that the light never once moves position.
“If it were a plane or something like that, flying at 400 to 600 miles per hour, you can bet you would see some movement but this piece just sat there.
“From the distance that he recorded this, I would think that it would have to be a massive light.
“I’m scratching my head at what could have created this?
“Is this some sort of portal? Is this some sort of craft up in the clouds that has a light on the bottom of this that not only points straight down towards the Earth but is also powerful enough to cut through these cloudy skies.”
The light can be seen in the sky for about 20 seconds before completely disappearing.
Commenters on the video state that there was some spooky goings on in the region about the time the video was captured – towards the end of February.
One person wrote: “This is too weird, I woke up from a dream seeing something in the sky like a portal, then all of a sudden I was getting sucked into one. This literally happened this morning when I was sleeping. strangely I live in Cali as well”.
Another added: “I live in Huntington Beach and have seen some crazy things around here!”
However, others were not so convinced.
A skeptic said: “The ‘weird light’ over California was a Trident II ballistic missile test, two missiles were launched.”
Another said: “Getting so sick of the use of the word ‘portal’ in every other ufo video lol – it’s pop sci fi terminology at best. This looks simply like a helicopter searchlight shining through low cloud/mist.”
