It seems like the perfect story for May sweeps, but staffers at one San Diego station are being ordered to stay quiet.
KNSD cameras captured an unusual colorful grouping of aerial lights over San Ysidro, close to the U.S.-Mexico border.
"Some said they appeared to be red, blue, and green and kept flashing and changing colors. Some who saw them say the lights didn't seem to move, like those on a plane or a drone," the station reported. They also said they called the military for answers. "We put in calls to the military here to see if they could identify what these were. So far, no response."
But now it seems the station has gone quiet about the lights in the sky.
After UFO researchers and The Huffington Post called, asking for details of the event.
A Reporter, who said she was instructed not to give her name, told HuffPost that the station management didn't want any of their photographers interviewed or giving out information on the matter.
On the evening the video was shot, NBC 7 had been in the San Ysidro area working on an unrelated story.
One eyewitness, Larry Fox, sent photos to the TV station in which he described seeing something that "looked like a strobe light." Fox told NBC 7 he didn't feel it was a plane or drone. "It was a series of flashing lights. If it was a plane, it would have moved."
Here's video of the lights in the sky:
