It seems that this is causing a stir at SFO, but not in Palo Alto. Perhaps those who are complaining about the noise are taking matters into their own hands!! I doubt it, but it is something that should concern those of us who live here. I don't like to see this type of bad publicity for Palo Alto.

"I don't like to see this type of bad publicity for Palo Alto." There's nothing you can do about it. I don't like to read that people on planes are being endangered by those near or in Palo Alto. Hopefully, the idiots will stop this behavior.

News reports on July 5th specifically mentioned Palo Alto and strobe light coming from the Dumbarton Bridge area. That area is in East Palo Alto, but news organizations frequently get names wrong. From a plane at night, it's hard to know the boundaries.

Yep. Dumbarton is Menlo on this side. We don't know the specific location that this is coming from. There are places there that the public can't access. It could be from a boat on the bay? Someone driving near the bridge? Someone prowling around by the Book of the Face or an EPA neighborhood or Menlo Business Park?
