To be fair, if you happened to look up over California last night and see the lightshow that everyone saw - and have no knowledge of the SpaceX launch - you'd be forgiven for thinking it was something like a UFO.
As it turns out, even though some people knew what it was, they still thought it was a UFO - and singer Demi Lovato was one of them.
I’m calling bullshit on SpaceX’s excuse. That shit’s a UFO and there’s been others that have been seen that are just like it!!

The launch of the reusable Falcon 9 rocket by SpaceX delivered a total of ten satellites to the Iridium communications network, and caught the attention of a number of people in California - including the aforementioned Lovato, actor Don Cheadle, will.i.am and a few more.
Even Elon Musk himself was getting in on the action, calling the launch a "Nuclear alien UFO from North Korea," which EXACTLY what you'd have us believe it is. Double-bluff, you guys. We're through the looking glass. It's all connected.
Here's a great video of the launch, anyway. To be fair, we'd all think this was a UFO if we didn't know any better.
