“Chubbs” is estimated to be 15 feet long and he’s back. The 15-foot-long alligator made a return appearance last week, lumbering through the Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida, then plopping down on the green. “Me and my dad were about to hit off the tee on a par 3 and we saw him lying right on the green.” “He was a beast,” golfer Sage Stryczny, who captured the footage, told Tampa NBC station WFLA. Chubbs became a viral sensation in 2016 when similar footage surfaced, making the gator something of a tourist attraction ― and perhaps course hazard ― at Buffalo Creek.
Stryczny said they were within about 50 feet of the gator as they tried to play. He added that the reptile seemed to be trying to go from one pond to another, but was stopping to rest along the way.  “He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him.” “People have heard that he is out here and that is all they want to see so they will bring spectators to ride so somebody can get a picture,” Wendy Schofield, a clerk at the pro shop, told NBC station News 3 in Las Vegas at the time. Chubbs is so adored that someone even edited him into scenes from “Jurassic Park”:

Social Media Freak-Out Is Caused By ‘Mystery Lights’ Over San Diego

Sign, Road, Road Sign, Traffic

Almost as soon as the incident began, people started posting images and videos on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, the set of lights hovering over San Diego on Wednesday night left many wondering just what they could be. At first, the footage showed a single set of lights, hovering in place: “They were hovering in place and they were extremely bright,” Uma Aggarwa told the San Diego Union-Tribune, “It was the craziest thing.” She spotted the lights at 8:20 p.m., which would be a little more than an hour after sunset. The lights were soon joined by a second, smaller set just above. Then, the lights vanished. Reports of sightings came from as far as Del Mar, to the city’s north, San Ysidro, which is to the south along the Mexican border, and La Mesa, about 10 miles to the east, local TV station KUSI reported.

 A nighttime mystery in the skies? It was for a little while as tweeters floated theories ranging from drones to UFOs to exercises conducted by the military. One of those theories turned out to be correct… and it wasn’t the UFOs: A Navy spokesperson says those lights seen in the sky tonight are flares. An aircraft squadron is performing “flare training” about 30 miles off the coast of San Diego. The lights might be seen intermittently through Thursday night, when the drills are expected to end. CBS 8 reported that the flares were specifically from Squadron VMGR-325 (a.k.a. “The Raiders”) or the Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 352, part of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing based at nearby Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. But not everyone was buying it, @tomdelonge What do you make of this? It was in our (San Diego) night sky tonight. The official word is that it was a military flare exercise. I don’t agree. https://www.10news.com/news/san-diego
