And who had no idea SpaceX was launching anything and thought we were being visited by a UFO? The video above was shot from Alhambra, California — about 15 miles away from downtown Los Angeles. The video down below is closer look at the flight. From where I was, Long Beach, you could hear a faint humming sound, almost like a low rumbling. It was fucking weird — the smoke or vapor or whatever it was seemed like it was sparkling. Definitely the strangest, coolest thing I’ve ever seen in the air.
