U.S. Military Denies Spaceship Reports After Mysterious Bright Lights Are Seen In Sky
Did you see a mysterious bolt of light in the sky last night??
According to NBC News and the U.S. Military a missile test was the cause of a mysterious light that appeared in the night sky over California and parts of the Left Coast late Saturday night, prompting calls to officials.
The missile was not armed, a spokesperson for the U.S. Navy said. It was launched from a submarine.
“Navy Strategic Systems Programs 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,” Navy Cmdr. Ryan Perry said in a statement.
“The tests were part of a scheduled, on-going system evaluation test,” he said. The Trident II is a submarine-launched ballistic missile.
The strange light was seen at around 6 p.m. local time (9 p.m. ET). Singer Josh Groban joked on Twitter that the streaking flare signaled “impending doom.”
The National Weather Service in Hanford, California, said it received numerous reports from curious observers about the strange light.
The Orange County, California, sheriff’s office took to its Twitter account to confirm that the light was from a Naval test fire.
NBC Los Angeles said it fielded many calls from viewers wondering what the strange object was. Similar calls came in to NBC stations in San Diego and the Bay Area.
The light was reportedly visible as far away as Arizona.
