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.

Elon Musk (Elon Musk is an American investor and inventor. He is the founder and CEO of SpaceX.)‏ tweeted about his rocket last night .. greatest tweet ever!
“@elonmusk Rocket booster relit twice (supersonic retro & landing), but spun up due to aero torque, so fuel centrifuged & we flamed out”
