The Space X Falcon 9 rocket launched Sunday night which caused a strange looking light into the nights sky. This may come as a shock to some people but these lights were not from any aliens or UFOs. According to the staff at Space X, The atmospheric conditions were the reason that this visual and stunning display lit up our sky. The two staged rocket blasted right on time at 7:21 pm PT from California’s Vandenberg Air Force base. Minutes after the launch, the rockets second stage separated from the first stage which is why you might have seen two bright white lights in the eye catching ”cloud”.
Social media immediately responded to this launch with pictures, videos, and conspiracy theories. For many people, this launch was unexpected and surprising. ”I was on the freeway when I first saw the launch,” said Cristian Huante, a senior in TCA. ”At first i thought we were going to get nuked.”
