The Battle of Los Angeles. (Culture)

On February 24, 1942, the air raid sirens went off all over Los Angeles. Just three months after the attack on Pearl Harbour, the army took no chances. A blackout for the whole city was ordered, and a barrage of anti-aircraft artillery was fired up into the sky at an unseen enemy. The only thing is, they never found anything. Some say it was just war nerves, while others swear to have seen an unidentified aircraft. The case made international headlines, and remains a mystery to this day. Here is another in depth, fascinating analysis of the photo taken above that fateful night.
It also seems to have inspired a pretty fun looking movie.
Here is a 2 second snippet released at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Yes. 2 Seconds. Weird, right?
