Not sure if you saw that ‘UFO’ trended on South African social media over the weekend after dozens of people spotted a glowing orb in the night sky. Pictures circulated and alien spotters lost their sh*t after seeing a strange glow. Turns out it was actually SA born billionaire, Elon Musk’s fault.
Here’s what folks saw.
Does look kinda dodge that hey, but it was actually the Falcon 9 rocket dumping fuel at 18:52 as entered its orbit causing a circular cloud over the southern African skies that was observed by many.
The Falcon 9 rocket is made by SpaceX, the company owned by Elon Musk.
Now you know.
