Dirk Vander Ploeg, not just a writer but also the editor of UFODigest.com, has this to say about the Battle of Los Angeles:

In the early morning hours of February 25, 1942, the sleep of two million Americans, in the vicinity of Los Angeles, California, was interrupted by the sound of air raid sirens and anti aircraft fire.

Groggy residents awakened by the high pitched warnings and the almost ceaseless firings of artillery were rewarded with a light show that made the night into day...

Recently, a man working as a G-rated comic from Texas claims to have a possible explantion for the event. He states that he is in contact with a member of a race of beings commonly referred to as the Grays.

Was it a weather balloon? A probing Japense experimental aircraft? A false alarm? Or was it something more sinister? As Vander Ploeg notes, "One could speculate as to why the UFO was floating over the greater L.A. area or why it's occupants would approach a standup comedian to tell their tale." Indeed.
