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.

I saw a thread where this tin foil mad hatter was saying it was a ufo, and we all needed to wake up to ourselves.
I don’t know what it is, therefor…aliens. Logic fail

“Hey I know what it is! It’s my remaining hope in humanity running away!” 😀

“Get in Sam, where leaving here in this rocket”

So it was just something alot scarier than a UFO

Thank God it was only Trident, for a moment I thought that someone had launched a nuke…

How would you be…
