Couple years ago my dad and I were out on our kayaks at night off Dana Point and a pretty big meteor streaked straight down to the E over land. A call came over the VHF from a boat at Cat, calling DP Harbor Patrol's attention to a distress flare over the channel, and DPHP started to mobilize some resources to check it out. We talked it over and decided we should let them know that it could have been the meteor that was seen and the perspective from Cat might have made it look like it was over the channel. My dad called it in and he was thanked for the info. We assume they did some checking however they could and within minutes they recalled their boat(s) and asked for any possible visuals of secondary flares. The VHF was quiet for the rest of the night and no other flares or meteors were seen.
I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.
