Was it UFO? Missile test over Los Angeles makes people’s hair stand on end

Los Angeles: Residents of Los Angeles could not believe their eyes on Sunday as they watched an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) zooming past over them.

Later, it was revealed that it was a missile test off the California coast but not before it sparked frenzy on social media, with #UFO, #comet and #navy trending, as flabbergasted people uploaded videos and pictures of a bright light illuminating the night skies.

The San Diego Union-Tribune said the streaking light was visible as far away as Nevada and Arizona and authorities were reportedly flooded with calls.

However just when some were predicting the end of the world, officials cleared up the mystery.

“Navy Strategic Systems Programs conducted [a] 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,” Navy Commander Ryan Perry said in a statement.

“The tests were part of a scheduled, on-going system evaluation test.”
