Attack on L.A.?

above: Mystery objects (U.F.O.s) over L.A. triggered a massive anti-aircraft artillery barrage.

For more details google 'Battle of Los Angeles'.
This could be from a series of balloon bombs where the Japanese used the jet stream (largely unknown at the time) to attack us. The U.S. military kept the attack quiet so the Japanese wouldn't know that the balloons were successful and would stop as a result. It worked. However, there are still balloon bombs that have safely landed in rural parts that have not exploded yet. A few have been discovered. Several years ago, a young boy was badly injured when a slight touch set it off.
