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

We want to present to you a fabulous Instagram account called “Dogs In Food” and no, they aren’t playing in the food, they actually are the food! Oh! the shock!! I know what you’re thinking. They aren’t being eaten. When you think of dogs and food you think of all the wonderfully hilarious disasters that involve our furry four-legged friend. Max, told HuffPost, who runs the account and photoshops the images, “I receive DM’s from dogs who want to be food-ed and I try to read through as many as possible to find pups that look like grub.”
Whatcha guys doing in there?? #pupberries .

Max then tries to match the dogs’ spirit food and culinary preferences in a glorious dog-in-food mashup that has its followers begging for more. The account has over 487,000 followers, and that number doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. The site boasts images of dogs as blueberries, cotton candy and even bananas. We have to admit the cake ones look the yummiest… er, we mean cutest.
Cotton puppy!
