A video has appeared online showing unusual lights in the sky above a boat off the California coast.

Quote

Little is known about the origins of the video save for some brief details claiming that the footage was filmed in September. The cameraman appears to be located on a beach looking across the ocean at a ship that seems to have run in to some trouble with smoke billowing from the hull.

has anyone thought to check with the Coastguard, assuming there's anyone in at the moment, whether there've been any cargo ships in difficulty off California recently? Anyway, the smoke's clearly coming from the funnell or smokestack. If it is in any difficulty, it looks as if it'd be more for contravening emissions regulations.

Nice another video from a source with over 100 ufo vids on their channel, please sir, may I have some more?  What came to mind was that they were emergency flares, thanks to the description.  But the lights didnt have the conventional gravity drag that flares are subject to.

I just saw this exact same video a few weeks ago. this isn't new and it didn't happen very recently. this is old news. seems a lot of earlier videos/photos are circulating broadcasting as new videos when they're not. Besides, flares go up, linger a bit and disappear. Unlike the video, they stay in formation (3) of them, and then though one light does go down, the other two float upwards after having been hovering for a while... very unlike a flare.

Some lights faded out while a couple of them moved up at an angle. Don't know if flares do that. Need to find out about the ship and study the video by a pro for credibility.

If a merchant ship was in difficulty, they wouldn't use flares, that's what radios are for these days. If there had been a merchant ship on fire off California any time recently, it would have been in the news. Have there been any such reports?

The ship seems to be having a few problems and some of the people have done the sensible thing and got into the lifeboats and let off flares. They would not all have a radio each, but would have flares. The way they are falling indicate exactly that...flares.
Hope the person taking the vid had the sense to inform the coastguards, although it is highly likely the ship would have done that too. Note it is difficult to tell how far away from the ship the lifeboats are hence the reason they are using the flares, because they could already be miles away.
