VIDEO: 911 Flooded With Calls In Multiple States After SpaceX Launch

The SpaceX launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in central California made a spectacular show.

Vandenberg AFB, CA - People in southern California and Arizona started calling 911 after witnessing a SpaceX rocket launch on Friday night (videos below.)

The white streak left a jellyfish-shaped pattern, leaving many to be concerned about UFOs or a nuclear strike from North Korea, according to Daily Mail.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 booster lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base shortly before 5:30 p.m. carrying satellites for Iridium Communications.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted a video of the takeoff quipping that it was a "Nuclear alien UFO from North Korea."

Actress Jenna Fischer called it a "weird jellyfish thing."

In the event of an actual alien invasion or nuclear missile strike, calling 911 is unlikely to help you.

@Det_John_Kimble first off, any Confederate soldier was a traitor to the US. Second, do you ever read a book or go to a museum? The history is all there. If people want to keep the traitors' statues, then put them in a museum in the proper context. Not in a park to be celebrated by the country they were at war with.

Do you think that because there's no George Washington statues in Britain, they've forgotten that we won our independence with him as general? And how have they not forgotten? Oh yeah.... Paintings, books, museums, etc.

Germany doesn't allow Nazi statues, but they do teach the Nazi regime in its proper context in school. You know, in books. Where history can be seen anytime you want.


Thanks @hi_estoffpointtroll for ruining another conversation.

No problem. I just don't understand why you'd be against taking down traitor statues, though.


I don’t let a statue, painting, poem, fill in the blank ruin my day. I’ve got bigger things to keep me occupied.

Good on you. I wish the rest of the South would follow suit.
