SpaceX launches rocket, California confused it with UFO, floods Twitter
California : A couple of days before Santa is believed to soar in the skies, California people were left in shock after a mysterious object was seen gliding through the skies with a shiny tail attached.
Twitter was soon flooded with pictures and videos of the object with some claiming it to be an alien ship.
“Anyone else see that #UFO in LA just now!?” tweeted one shaken resident. ‘WTF is that???'
Some other users claimed that this is a proof that life exists beyond Earth and aliens have made their much-awaited debut on our planet.
“Everyone is Downtown LA was pretty freaked out,” reported one witness on Twitter, adding that crowds cocked their heads skyward to view the phenomenon.
But to a mix of relief and disappointment, other Tweeters quickly debunked the UFO theory, noting that the jellyfish-shaped object was in fact part of Elon Musk’s SpaceX satellite fleet.
The Falcon 9 booster rocket – which carried 10 satellites – launched from Vandenburg Air Force Base around 5:30 p.m. California time en route to destinations across the globe.
‘Elon Musk just scared the f*** out of me!” tweeted one shaken Los Angeleno.
“For 10 minutes I was under the impression that the Aliens had finally come,” said another user in a tweet to the tech innovator. “It was kind of a letdown but still, thank you for the experience.”
