    Mysterious Lights Came From TV Antennas: Photographer

    The mysterious lights spotted last week south of San Diego are a mystery no more.

    And the source isn't a flying saucer that's going to whisk you away.

    An NBC 7 news photographer believes the strange blinking lights he captured in a video last week were coming from TV news antennas in Mexico, about 15 miles from the U.S. border.

    Reports of the mysterious lights generated attention on a number of national and international news sites, such as Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post.

    [DGO] Mysterious Lights Spotted South of San Diego
    This video was taken by our NBC 7 crew in San Ysidro. Several viewers also told us about the lights. 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. We put in calls to the military here to see if they could identify what these were. So far, no response.

    The photographer was in San Ysidro last Tuesday night covering an unrelated story when he noticed the mysterious lights. He returned during daylight hours and noticed the TV antennas on the mountaintop at the same place he spotted the lights.

    He believes the foggy conditions made the lights coming from the antennas more striking than other nights – and why so many people who saw them were so baffled.

    A number of residents called NBC 7 to report the mysterious lights and a NBC 7 viewer also provided photos. Those who saw the lights all said they appeared to be south of downtown San Diego.
