Celebs Freak Out Over UFO Sighting, Navy Swears It Was Just a Missile Test

On Saturday night, an Unidentified Flying Object streaked through the midnight sky over Los Angeles, causing basically everyone to take to the internet and freak the hell out!

The UFO, which many immediately and frantically assumed to be an extraterrestrial spacecraft, appeared as a brilliantly bright white light that could be seen from hundreds of miles away.

Now, in the sobering light of day, some boring spoilsports at something called "the United States Navy" have decided to rain on everyone's parade by identifying the UFO as a Trident missile, which was test-fired at sea from a ballistic submarine in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
