I’ve been receiving butt load of emails about this strange cloud called as UFO but answer is simple “no”, that amazing looking object pictured below taking off from Cape Canaveral in Florida this week is not a UFO at all. It is very much an identified object, because many people (including me) watched it launch! The stunning sight was in fact a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket, launching the U.S. Navy’s MUOS-4 spacecraft. The rocket lifted off at almost 6:18 a.m. EDT (11 a.m. BST) on Wednesday September 2, just as perfect time when the Sun was rising, and the combination of distinctive conditions meant that it shaped a remarkable vista for observers on the ground. As the rocket moved up into the atmosphere, the mixture of the pre-dawn light and the atmospheric conditions meant that the trail of the rocket made a stretched shape as it climbed into space.
In several videos, just like the one below, what you see is just an illusion, and it is in fact travelling into the distance. You can watch the a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket launch here.
