People admiring the night sky over San Diego Wednesday night got an eyeful of mysterious lights that sent them scrambling to social media.

The lights appeared around 8:20 p.m. and were seen as far away as Del Mar and San Ysidro.

"Looks like floating balls of fire." one spectator tweeted.

Initially, the lights aligned in a row and appeared to hover in the sky. They were eventually joined by a second row of lights. 

The official explanation from CBS 8 is that the lights were part of a military exercise using flares from Squadron VMGR-325 based out of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

For those of us raised on X-Files, we know better.
