Social media went into hysteria after the appearance of a strange light in the sky. The sighting created speculation of a UFO encounter as witnesses left baffled after seeing thespectacular light show. Many people grabbed their camera and recorded the activity of the bright white orb with blue tail flashing across the dark sky.
Hundreds of residents in Santa Monica, Rancho Palos Verdes, Temecula, and Anaheim have witnessed the same remarkable phenomenon.
Social media have been flooded with highly excited speculation that the light could be something extraterrestrials, and some suggested a rocket or a comet as the possible reason of the bizarre light.
One Twitter user recorded on video what he thought a sky is opening up like a zombie apocalypse.
Another witness, Julien Solomita had managed to film time-lapse videos when he noticed the phenomenon.
Here’s one report by our reader from Temecula:
Came out of the Trader Joe’s at 6:00 p.m., was putting away groceries when looking up in the sky we saw a blue halo with a bright light shining(shining south) through it behind that bright light was a small white light. I guess we saw the end of it, which I captured on video, but you can’t see the little bright light object making the huge bright light through the halo nor the halo because it was disappearing as the white dot was going northern direction but further into the sky and it all disappeared in a matter of less than a minute. All that was left in the sky there was a green haze (like aurora borealis type) and then just a regular foggy haze, however, the sky was completely clear everywhere else. Other people saw it happen from the beginning, a big blue halo then the bright dot that came through the halo which shined a huge light in east direction then down towards the earth (ground), and the bright dot started going back further into the halo and disappeared. There is no way it was a missile like they tried to say, I’ve seen missile tests at night in Las Vegas and they look like a comet with a squiggly smoke trail, this started off as a huge halo with the star coming through it with a huge type of light looking around. Unexplainable.
Sadly for alien sighting enthusiasts, the U.S. Navy confirmed later that the mysterious flying object was an unarmed missile. The Navy Strategic Systems Programs performed a scheduled Trident II D5 missile test, according to Navy Commander Ryan Perry. The missile was test-fired at sea from an Ohio Class SSBN, the USS Kentucky, in the Pacific Test Range around the Southern California coast. It is part of the on-going system evaluation test.
Or is this just a cover-up??
