Case Status: Solved
by John Greenewald, Jr., TBV Investigations
On the night of December 22, 2017, The Black Vault received numerous emails and telephone calls about a mysterious object, or objects, over the greater Los Angeles area.
I live in this area (specifically, Castaic) and witnessed the event first hand. Having grown up in the San Fernando Valley, I witnessed launches of rockets from Vandenberg Air Force Base numerous times.
The object that created quite a stir was a SpaceX launch of their Iridium 4 Mission, scheduled for this day. According to SpaceX:
