It is now 3:30am. I woke up around 2 but couldn’t fall back to sleep after an hour of trying so decided to just get up. I looked out over the ocean and noticed a very bright light. Sometimes it is a cruise ship pulling into San Francisco so I thought I try to snap a picture.
I got my telescope and just put my phone up to the lens. The light turned out to be two ships with a patrol boat or two circling them. I have no idea what these ships would be doing. at 3am. with patrol boats.
Strange things are afoot in Linda Mar.
Update: 3:36am – The boats have turned off the bright lights.
Update: 9/2 – I put this up on the Pacifica message boards asking what it might be. The best answer was squid fishing. The bright lights attract the squid and the boat circles with the net to collect the squid – makes sense.
