Was ‘UFO’ seen over southern U.S. part of secret military maneuvers in Pacific? — Videos

brightlightOn Saturday, a number of people from Southern California to Nevada and Arizona were perplexed by a bright light streaking across the sky — so much so that the hashtag “#UFO” began trending on Twitter.

As Twitchy reported, quite a few took video of the event and posted it to the social media site:

It turns out the “UFO” was actually a Trident II (D5) missile launched from the USS Kentucky, an Ohio class submarine.

ABC7 reported:

The missile was not armed, according to the statement, and tests are conducted on a frequent, recurring basis to ensure reliability of the system.

Residents from Ventura to as far as Nevada and Arizona took photos and videos of the strange phenomenon around 6 p.m.

But was it part of a secret military maneuver being conducted in the Pacific?  ABC said that isn’t known yet.

On Friday, ABC reported that military “maneuvers over the Pacific are forcing a change in Los Angeles International Airport landings late at night…”

ABC added: “The military is not saying what exactly is causing the change, and LAX claims it’s also in the dark.”

“What’s going on this week is a mystery,” the report says.  ABC’s video report can be seen below:
