CALIFORNIA -- A strange light in the sky had people in Southern California lighting up social media.
Some people tweeted, "People are going to freak out," while others speculated it was a UFO and aliens.
Our sister station, KTLA, says the Ventura County Sheriff's Office confirms the flash of light was from a rocket launch. The light was seen around the same time SpaceX announced it was launching a Falcon 9 at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Check out the tweets, below; the sight is pretty amazing.
