One of the most unexpected stories from 2017 has undoubtedly been the Pentagon’s admission to their belief in the UFO phenomenon.

Not only have the DOD and the Pentagon been secretly studying unidentified flying objects to the tune of $22 million, but they are convinced these devices are of a non-terrestrial origin.  The wording in a recently declassified report was quite clear about this particular facet of the story, sending the Fox Mulder-types into an absolute frenzy.

Many interested Americans have been adamant that the story is a revolutionary one, and that the mainstream media has not done their due diligence in covering the revelation.  The internet is filled with these perturbed believers trying to get the word out about the bombshell report, putting many of their fellow Americans on a path of internet research that has the entire nation pondering the possibility of extraterrestrial visitors.

SpaceX felt that this was the appropriate time to launch a rocket over California as well, creating an incredibly bizarre display in the night sky.

“A flash of bright light over Palm Springs had social media buzzing Friday evening, but don’t fret, it’s not an alien attack.

“All indications are that the light is coming from the launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that took off from Vandenberg Air Force Base near Santa Barbara.

“Many in the desert took to Facebook and Twitter to show images of the bright white light that illuminated the clouds over the San Jacinto Mountains.

“SpaceX began tweeting around 5 p.m. about the launch, which was aired live on their website. Falcon 9 launched around 5:30 p.m., according to tweets from the SpaceX Twitter account.

“Around 5:45 p.m., the engine was cut off and the stage separation was confirmed and the second stage engine burn was underway.”


When you get a good look at what these crazed Californians were witnessing, it’s no surprise that many took to the internet to express their concern.

Among those who commented on the phenomenon was ‘The Office’ actress Jenna Fischer who wrote: “LA…what the heck is this weird jellyfish thing going across the sky right no

For now, the UFO craze will likely continue via sources such as Facebook and Reddit, leading many to keep a watchful eye skyward in the coming months.
