A week after the United States government released new information about unidentified flying vehicles the military has come into contact with over the years, an unexpected sight shot over one of the most populated regions in the country.
Spectators recorded the "missile-shaped" phenomenon using their smartphones and cameras, trying to figure out what was flying over-top of Hollywood Friday evening.
Many were quick to guess at its origins. It was assumed to be not of this world, and the tag #alien was attached to most pictures posted during the sighting.
I have no idea what this was but everyone including me in Woodland Hills, CA pulled over to the side of the road to take pictures and video and to discuss whether we just saw a UFO or not.This is the video I shot of the aftermath of what were a lot of lights and smoke in the sky. pic.twitter.com/pqLi9FCMNH— Stephen Cooper (@SteveCooperEsq) December 23, 2017
Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately?), this was neither contact of the First Kind nor Santa out for a test-drive.
This was actually an American space-traveler.
