RIVERSIDE (CBS) — Witness some strange lights in the sky over Riverside County Thursday night? You are not alone.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department says the lights that many people have reported in the night sky were simply civilian parachuters with flares.
The parachuting group warned the sheriff’s department that they were going to make the jump at night.
The lights were seen around 10 p.m.
