In the “City of Angels” there was something floating over them.

With a projectile shooting accross the skies in Los Angeles Friday, it raised some eyebrows. However, SpaceX, a company that designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockers and spacecraft, confirmed the projectile was a rocket they launched for an experiment. The city’s mayor Eric Gracetti confirmed it as well.

“It’s a #SpaceX Falcon 9 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base,” Garcetti tweeted Friday.

This was a relief to atleast two people on Twitter who thought it was a nuclear launch.

“When you see #SpaceX trending and realize it wasn’t a Nuke launch [by] Trump,” Twitter account Big Uzi tweeted Friday along with a gif of Denzel Washington patting his heart.

Another thought it was an outside attack on America.

“When you though[t] North Korea got tired of Trump talking sh*t and they was ending it all #SpaceX,” Twitter account DKT tweeted Friday with a photo of Taraji P. Henson hiding behind a car.

In addition to a nuclear launch another common theory was that a UFO was hovering over Los Angeles.

“Wtf is in the sky…,” The Greatest Showman star Zendaya tweeted. After seeing a tweet from SpaceX it gave her “some kind of closure” knowing it wasn’t what she thought it was initially.

“Cause I was almost positive it was some UFO alien shit…,” Zendaya tweeted.

Even after SpaceX had confirmed it was their launch one celebrity wasn’t buying it.

“I’m calling bullshit on SpaceX’s excuse. That shit’s a UFO and there’s been others that have been seen that are just like it!!” Demi Lovato tweeted Friday night.
