  • If you were awake and online at all this past Friday, you probably saw the internet explode with shouts of a UFO flying over Los Angeles. It was captured on video and in photos by many — a burst of light crossing the sky with a blueish streak trailing after it.

    The explanations started rolling in within the hour: a meteor shower, a rocket, and finally the US Navy came out and said it was a test launch of the Trident II missile.

    Right. Sure.

    Anyway, whether this truly was a missile test or actual aliens flying across our sky (or just a really elaborate promo for the X-Files reboot), watching people react to strange phenomena is one of the best categories of online video, so check it out and see for yourself.
