A missile test off the Californian coast sparked frenzy on social media and spooked residents who believed they had just seen a UFO.

The Twitter hashtags #comet and #UFO were trending on Saturday as social media users uploaded videos and pictures of the mysterious bright light illuminating the night skies.

 

However, it was later revealed that the US Navy had conducted scheduled Trident II (D5) missile test flight at sea from USS Kentucky, an Ohio Class SSBN, in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California.
