A stunning sight greeted Los Angeles residents in the sky recently, but there's no need to fear an alien invasion, officials say.
An absolutely astonishing sight was photographed in the skies over Atlanta recently, prompting wild speculation on social media. The mystery “cloud” seen over the City of Angels recently led all sorts of people to speculate about aliens, but officials said the visage had a much more mundane explanation. Video of the extraordinary event is embedded at the bottom of this post.
As it turns out, Elon Musk was behind the bizarre sight. His company, SpaceX, had launched a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandeenberg Air Force Base at around 5:30 p.m., resulting in the strange apparition.
It resulted in all sorts of shocked reaction on Twitter. “WTF was that – first contact?,”, tweeted user ‘Echo Park Now’. Musk himself joked about the sighting on Twitter, calling it a “Nuclear alien UFO from North Korea.”
