Weird lights appear in sky, don't worry it's not aliens (December 22, 2017)

Weird "blimp-like" lights appeared in the sky over southern California Friday evening. Many were curious about where the lights came from. 

Calls and messages flooded KENS 5 sister station ABC 10 to find out more about the bright lights.

The lights appear to have been coming from the Falcon 9 rocket, which was launched by SpaceX at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County around 5:30 p.m. 

The launch was the fourth set of 10 satellites in a series of 75 total satellites that will be launched for Iridium, a global leader in mobile voice and date satellite communications.

Watch the video below to see footage of the actual launch.
