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.
