Video: UFO Causes SpaceX Rocket Explosion?

The fiery explosion of a SpaceX rocket on Thursday has drawn the attention of conspiracy theorists who contend that the disastrous event was caused by a UFO!

In observing footage of the blast, numerous anomaly watchers noted, when slowed down, a dark, distinct orb can be seen zipping across the sky moments before the explosion erupts.

Skeptics, of course, say that the oddity is merely a bird or insect, but conspiracy theorists suggest otherwise, suggesting that the sheer speed of the object precludes such a prosaic explanation.

For their part, SpaceX says that the explosion was caused by a mishap during fueling, although conceded that the specific incident which sparked the inferno remains a mystery at this time.

Suspicions surrounding the explosion are fueled, in part, by the intriguing cargo contained on the Falcon 9 rocket.

The mission was supposed to launch a $200 million dollar Facebook satellite which was designed to help provide high speed Internet to remote corners of the world.

As such, some conspiracy theorists have surmised that the ETs presumably behind the explosion are either unhappy about such a plan or are simply not fans of Facebook.

Given the anonymity of the Internet, it should come as no surprise that aliens may be on Facebook and perhaps the endless Farmville invitations and Harambe memes have finally pushed them to the breaking point.
