UFO sighting reported by NBA player Manu Ginobili turns out to be skydivers with flares?by Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Dec. 14, 2010, under UFO News, UFOs
San Antonio Spurs star Manu Ginobili created a stir earlier this month, due to a highly publicized UFO sighting he reported. The glowing lights in the skies over L.A. that he spotted have now been identified.
According to TMZ.com, a team of skydivers carrying powerful flares were in the air at the same time as the NBA player’s sighting. The team was identified as the Red Bull Air Force skydivers. Although the team employs a calendar on their website, it does not appear to be kept up to date.
This incident is similar to other sightings in recent months, later to be identified as skydivers carrying flares. El Paso, Texas was the location of a sighting on October 15th. The mystery was solved when the Golden Knight skydivers came forward to claim responsibility. In Phoenix, Arizona, skydivers were offered up as an explanation for a mass sighting over the city on October 23rd. The Air Force later offered ‘military flares’ as the official explanation.
