PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Some Arizonans thought they saw a UFO streaking across the sky on Thursday night but there was a more down-to-earth explanation. Viewers started messaging Arizona’s Family just before 8 p.m. about the strange light. Some thought it was a SpaceX satellite. While the company had planned a launch for Thursday, it had to postpone that mission.

The so-called Alpha rocket launched from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. It’s made by a Texas-based company called Firefly Aerospace and is part of a mission for the U.S. Space Force, a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. The mission is reportedly called VICTUS NOX, which translates to “conquer the night” in Latin.

Arizona's Family viewers took videos of the strange light in the Arizona sky.
