The Battle of Los Angeles

On February 25, 1942, America was still new to WWII. Security was tight as the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was still fresh on everyone's mind. In the morning hours, air raid sirens erupted, waking people from their beds and scaring the hell out of everyone. The general consensus, Japan was launching another attack on American soil. The U.S. Army's 37th Coastal Brigade lit up the night sky with their massive spot lights looking for Japanese planes. However, they were due for an even bigger surprise. Instead, a massive UFO was hovering above the Los Angeles sky. The guns opened up. Witnesses would later claim the UFO took several direct hits, but appeared undamaged. Eventually the UFO moved away and the guns fell silent. In the aftermath, 6 people were later found dead from falling shell fragments.

These are supposedly archived photographs from that night.
