A successful SpaceX rocket launch lit up the night sky over Southern California yesterday evening. Some people tweeted about seeing a UFO or witnessing an end-of-the-world scenario but this dazzling display of lights was man-made. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket could not have been missed by those living in the Los Angeles area - as it was both heard - with a sonic boom, and seen overhead. Elon Musk and countless other "witnesses" posted photos on social media of the amazing sky event:
This isn't the first time SpaceX has been seen by the masses, and even sparked UFO sightings. In December 2017, a SpaceX rocket launch caused a mild panic in LA when people could not identify the amazing light show they were seeing in front of them:
Did you also get a glimpse of the SpaceX Rocket? Did you see something strange about it, or did you see it from a location far away from Southern California? Let me know!
Interesting enough, in the 1970s and 80s, the Vandenberg Air Force Base, where this modern-day rocket launched from, was once a secret, unused space port!

Jan 7th, 2018 Update: New photos of strange lights appearing near the SpaceX rocket have been submitted to MUFON (case 89382)... what could these lights be, UFOs, drones, reflections? If you live in California and witnessed the SpaceX launch on December 22nd, let me know if you saw any UFOs!
December 29th, 2017 Update: A new report and photo of strange green lights showing up alongside the surprising SpaceX rocket launch has been filed with MUFON (case 89155). This time, the witness was in Gardena, California. Compare the latest photo to the others below:
After the launch of a SpaceX rocket on December 22nd, 2017, many reports of a UFO were made as Californians were not expecting such a nighttime spectacle. Not to mention, the event occurred just a week after the New York Times reported on the Pentagon funding a secret, modern-day UFO research program.
However, even those who knew about the SpaceX news story still question it. Could a UFO really have been spotted over California, and did Elon Musk just help with a cover story? Or was the SpaceX rocket launch timed on purpose to occur after the New York Times article, in order to see how people would react?
Now, things get even weirder. Two separate witnesses (see MUFON cases 89100 and 89034) in West Hills and Westminster, California snapped of photos of strange green, unidentified lights alongside the headline-making SpaceX rocket:
It's very possible that these lights are simply lens artifacts or camera reflections, however considering that Elon Musk himself recently suggested a UFO (or mystery drone) was the cause of one of his past SpaceX rocket explosions, these photos are worth some investigation.

Did you watch the SpaceX rocket launch? Did you also see these strange lights? Report your sighting!
An extremely large cone-shaped, explosive object was seen ascending over Los Angeles, according to multiple eyewitness reports, photos and videos.
Fortunately it was not aliens invading, and unfortunately it was not Santa making an early visit, but just the SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket, carrying a load of communications satellites.
Luckily fellow UFO researcher Ryan Sprague was one of the many witnesses to capture some footage;
Not all of SpaceX's rocket launches have gone well. TexasUFOs once covered the explosion of a SpaceX rocket that may have been caused by an attacking UFO or drone, a story now all the more interesting considering the New York Times recent coverage of the Pentagon's secret UFO program!
Several days after the August 21st, 2017 solar eclipse over the US, a gigantic meteor was seen over the northeastern US, garnering nearly 1,000 reports on AMSMeteors.org, the highest count of 2017. Since then, a healthy stream of fireballs have been passing through Earth's atmosphere. Most notably, perhaps, a fireball event in Europe on September 21st was reported by over 400 people.
The day after that, in the Los Angeles area, a meteor was also reported by many, and video, photos and a drawing was also posted of a similar, but possibly unidentified object:
I was walking my dog at 10:50pm, I like to start gaze, when I noticed a plane flying towards me from the SE sky. I stopped and watched the plane for 1-2 minutes. I started to think about what if one day I see a UFO.
During the same time frame, in Milan, Italy, a very curious photograph was taken of a large ball of light and although the description was short, the event apparently happened the day after the well-documented major meteor event in Europe, so could be related:
What do you think of these UFO... ahem, meteor?.... sightings? Are we just getting a wave of space rocks, or could these objects be crashing satellites or even weapons of war? Are these UFO sightings related to the meteor events happening around the globe right now?

If you've filmed or photographed an amazing meteor (or UFO!) over your town, report it!
A really incredible daytime video showing a large, bright, shiny round object hovering extremely still has been uploaded to YouTube, and features great witness commentary. At the 3:22 mark in the video, a helicopter can be seen coming into the frame and curiously circling the UFO!
So far, this footage appears authentic, but I would love to find out if any others also saw this UFO over California. If you can share more about this sighting, please do! Is there a reasonable explanation, perhaps some weather balloon of sorts?
