According to multiple mainstream news outlets, a large US Air Force drone (the size of a commercial plane!) crashed over Mount Whitney, California, causing a wildfire.
What could be going on with the US military right now? Strangely enough, the very same day, a US Navy ballistic missile intercept test failed.
Also, other strange fireball reports came out around the same time. I received a secondhand report and photo of a large object seemingly crashing (but eventually "leveling out") over Bainbridge Island, Washington (which so far I am not at liberty to share). But there was a public meteor report logged of a similarly-behaving fireball over Seattle from the same night.
Could these military activities and other reports of fireballs be reported?
What is even wilder is today there is an online rumor that a UFO hit a building in Lima, Peru today, causing a fire. While the fire is confirmed, the rumors about its cause are not.
A very strange news day, indeed. What do you make of all these events? Share your thoughts below in the comments or join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
Did you see the crashing drone over California? Or any other mystery fireballs like that during this time frame? Report your sighting!
