Glowing lights strung across two miles of Hermosa Beach California on January 13, 2012

The lights disappear in the presence of a helicopter.

The noise you hear was a black helicopter. You can see it flying across the bottom of screen.

  1. I used to live in Hermosa Beach, and have lived in several other beach towns as well, and this kind of thing is totally normal. They put flares up in a row like that to mark when a ship or boat is is trouble, or where one has sunk, so that the Coast Guard can find them. The helicopter was probably the C.G., and it just looks black in the footage because the sky is almost dark.
