[UPDATE: The "UFO" Seen Over Southern California Was A Missile, says Cigarette-Smoking Man]

Every single person under the Los Angeles sky with a Twitter account is reporting that a UFO just flew over Los Angeles. We are here to report the news: a UFO did not just fly over Los Angeles. Sorry, Josh.

It wasn't even a rocket.

It wasn't even the Taurid Meteor Shower, which Accuweather notes will be bringing "cosmic fireballs" our way into next week.

UPDATE: Maybe it's a missile? It's a missile, says THE GOVERNMENT. The U.S. Navy confirmed this was a missile test conducted by the Navy Strategic Systems Programs off the coast of Southern California.

This is not to say there are no UFOs or aliens. There are definitely UFOs and aliens. They just aren't coming for us tonight.
