Many onlookers and netizens were convinced that the massive spherical light was indeed a UFO as indicated by the many online comments. However, there are those who say that it is nothing more than “a failed rocket launch from Cape Canaveral.”
MarEugenia, on the other hand, stayed firm that what they saw was actually an extraterrestrial spacecraft commenting:
“No, it’s in the opposite direction… It stopped two times and then kept on going”
MiamiHerald, a news website, debunked UFO theories and confirmed that the flash in the sky was indeed a rocket. According to their report:
“The Atlas V rocket launched from Cape Canaveral and gave the state show in the sky. The 21-story rocket is delivering a Navy satellite into orbit.”
