MIAMI – Early residents of South Florida looked up to the sky before sunrise on Friday and saw what some considered a UFO.
PHOTOS: UFOs? No, just a SpaceX launch over South Florida
Local 10 was overwhelmed with calls and emails about the strange object that was seen over most of Miami-Dade and Broward. Some asked if the end of the world was near and if an alien occupation began
Well, what they saw was actually a spaceship, but no reason to call Will Smith, as this was not an alien invasion.
The mysterious lights were actually from a SpaceX launch from Cape Canaveral.
At 5:42, SpaceX sent one of its Falcon 9 missiles on a supply mission to the International Space Station. The missile, along with the company's Dragon capsule, is due to arrive at the ISS on Monday.
Space.com reports that most of the material aboard the rocket is scientific objects; about 3,874 pounds. Value of equipment to be exact.
The report also says that a new experiment "to determine whether microgravity-cultured cells can serve as a model to evaluate the efficacy of certain cancer treatments" was also sent to space.
So do not worry, South Florida. The only invasion of our community is the Schneebirds, which descend in winter.
