UFO flies over California as SpaceX confuses and amazes many
Yesterday at 5:27PM SpaceX launched their Iridium 4 mission from Vandenberg air force base in California. While not uncommon for SpaceX to launch from that location what was uncommon was how it looked from the ground. Due to time of day and a ton of other factors the trail from the rocket was much wider than normal which lead to many who didn’t know about the launch thinking there was a rocket, alien spacecraft, or some other UFO flying over California. All over twitter there was questions about the launch.
I really dk what to believe.. Was a damn UFO or a “rocket” ? Are they making us believe that was a rocket? So many questions.. but this doesn’t even look like a #SpaceX rocket. C’mon we are way more clever than what they think! pic.twitter.com/dwu0ArDr3l

Other than the visual aspect this was a fairly standard launch for SpaceX. Really the most unusual thing was that they decided not to attempt a landing.
