Mysterious lights in the sky over San Diego turned out to be military flares from a training mission being conducted by U.S. Navy pilots off the coast of Imperial Beach, it was reported Thursday.
The lights were spotted about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and could be seen as far away as La Mesa, according to CBS8.
A Navy spokeswoman based at Naval Station Coronado confirmed to CBS8 the lights were part of a military training exercise taking place 30 miles off the San Diego coast.
The lights may be seen again Thursday evening when the drills are expected to conclude, the spokeswoman said.
