When a mysterious UFO is spotted near a SpaceX rocket, the live-stream abruptly cuts off, leaving viewers perplexed.
SPACEX viewers were perplexed this week when a live-stream of the most recent Falcon 9 space rocket launch was abruptly interrupted just as a mysterious UFO appeared.
The appearance of a mysterious object beneath the Falcon 9 rocket during its launch on Thursday sparked a UFO frenzy on the internet.
SpaceX launched its first Falcon 9 rocket in the new year, launching a new batch of Starlink satellites into orbit before returning to Earth.
A mysterious ring-shaped UFO can be seen moving below the rocket during footage of the live-streamed rocket launch.
“Was watching the @SpaceX Falcon 9 launch today when I saw something interesting,” DanielJW3 tweeted alongside a video of the UFO sighting.

“This ring-shaped UFO showed up during the Falcon 9 launch at Kennedy Space Center in Florida,” wrote YouTuber The Hidden Underbelly 2.0, who also posted a video of the sighting.
“This object appeared while the rocket was flying over our planet, and then the cameras switched.”
“Can somebody explain what this is?” one person asked on the Starlink forum on Reddit.
“We can see this doughnut-shaped object that appears here,” YouTuber The Hidden Underbelly 2.0 said.
“And guess what happens when we get a good look at it? The camera cuts to another scene.”
“I don’t think this is a lens flare; lens flares usually come in a variety of colors.”
To be honest, I’m completely stumped on this one.”
“Really awesome capture, you’re right, this isn’t a camera artefact,” one person commented.
It’s something physical, but the way it develops is fascinating.
“Based on the way it forms, it appears to be advanced technology.”
“Kind of looks like it’s observing because it stays in frame longer than a piece of the rocket would have if it had come off,” another speculated.
Several people, however, used the Reddit forum to refute claims of technology, claiming that the object was simply “ice buildup.”
“You can even see some ice stuck on top of second stage nozzle at T(plus) 00:03:45,” Zerobuff said on Reddit.
“Frost ring,” another user added.
When the craft is on the ground, it builds up, but it detaches during flight due to vibration.
It occurs frequently.”
Another joked that it was SpaceX’s “Brinkwire Summary News,” while another said it was “aliens, it’s always aliens.”
