No it was not a UFO, but a SpaceX rocket

People all over the Bay Area took to social media Sunday evening after wondering if they had seen a UFO.

What they viewed shooting through the sky was SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, which launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in southern California, according to a SpaceX tweet.
The rocket is delivering a Argentinian satellite called SAOCOM 1A to low Earth orbit. It launched at 7:21 p.m.

“Yah! I thought it was a UFO,’said one tweet. “Thanks @SpaceX for giving us a reason to look up,” said another.

The company, founded by Elon Musk, also successfully landed the reusable booster, the first time it has done so on the West Coast.

Here’s a video of the launch from one of our journalists, followed by a video of the landing of the booster.
