giant whirlpool seen of coast of san diego, ca. possible ufo site

off the coast of san diego theres a gigantic whirlpool video taped live by a cesna plane pilot. it was on the channel 2 news in los angeles ca. today on 05/10/2001. at 6:00 pm scientist claim they have no explanation of it and have never seen anything like it before. im bringing this to you to see if you can further investigate it and let the public know whats going on.

((NUFORC Note: We have seen the still photograph of this phenomenon, and it is impressive. It appears to be a very strong vortex, apparently in the ocean off San Diego. There may be a simple explanation for this presumably rare phenomenon, and we do not necessarily suspect that it is UFO-related. PD))
