First excitement, then disappointment: it was not a UFO, but “only” the launch of a “Falcon 9” rocket that was spotted on Los Angeles. SpaceX founder Elon Musk reacted to the speculation with humor.
Excitement on the US West Coast: On Friday, a bright object in the night sky over the US metropolis of Los Angeles flashed on and pulled a spectacular cloud of smoke behind her. To the disappointment of all UFO enthusiasts, speculation on the Internet about an alien flying object was quickly disappointed: it was a launch of a “Falcon 9” rocket of the private space company SpaceX.
Launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the missile was also visible in neighboring states such as Arizona. SpaceX founder Elon Musk took the hype about the supposedly unidentified flying object with humor and posted a video of the rocket on Twitter. It was a “nuclear alien UFO” from North Korea, he joked.
