People in the United States have been obsessed with UFO sightings and paranormal activity for as long as one can remember. Area 51 has acquired legendary status for the number of sightings that haven reported from the region.

Recently, though, the people of California were startled and somewhat terrified to see a mysterious bright light tearing through the clear sky and this came just a few days after Bangkok witnessed a bright fireball in the sky .

Immediately after the sighting, there was a lot of speculation as to what that light might be, and everything from a comet to a UFO to a Nuclear bomb was thrown into the equation. But what no one took into account was the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) announcement that night time flights to and from Los Angeles would not fly over the Pacific ocean.

But since conspiracy theorists can never be satisfied, this also might be seen as a government cover-up for a UFO sighting.
