Not only did the sky above Oklahoma light up with an amazing display of light, but social media filled up with instant conspiracy theories.

Did the Sooner State witness a UFO in plain sight?


Here's the video one user captured on the TikTok... You can see it for yourself.

@ryaninoklahoma UFO sighting in Oklahoma on March 4th, 2024 at 7:30 pm. Do you believe in UFOs? #oklahoma #ufo ♬ original sound - RyaninOklahoma

Even if you already know where this is going, you can't deny that had to be an amazing thing to see in person... granted, there were a ton of Oklahomans who saw it happen and instantly hopped on Facebook to ask questions and spread theories.


Given the super-sensitive nature of people in the heartland of America at the moment... with the wildfires and rumors of directed energy weapons testing that may have sparked all of the chaos...

@indigenousthought For entertainment and educational purposes. This video shows a Direct Energy Weapon, or DEW in action. It’s a high frequency beam of energy/light that can be directed very accurately and can cause fires. There are different colors that can be used across the spectrum which often ignite everything but things that match its color. For example, if its a blue DEW, it will ignite everything that isn’t blue. These weapons can be mounted on the nose of a plane, amongst many other things. They’re like those high powered laser pointers, on steroids. #fyp #directenergyweapons #dew #themoreyouknow #knowledgeispower #tapin ♬ original sound - IndigenousThought

it's almost understandable people would instantly leap to UFOs... After all, the federal government did acknowledge UFOs under oath not long ago.

The truth shall set you free...

It wasn't a UFO. Not aliens. Not directed energy weapons. None of that. It was a space launch.

From SpaceX:

On Monday, March 4 at 6:56 p.m. ET, Falcon 9 launched 23 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

We happened to catch the show in Oklahoma as they launched more satellites for the worldwide mobile internet technology. If you've ever seen the Starlink satellites pass overhead, it's also pretty neat.

@theorbitalalliance Why does SpaceX Starlink disappear?? #longervideos#space#spacex#elonmusk#starlink#weirdlights#spacevideos♬ watching the stars - Øneheart
As you can see, there is no need to start hoarding tinfoil just yet...
