On Saturday night a bunch of people in southern California saw a bright light in the sky.
Local authorities said the light was a test missile.
People on Twitter were quick to dismiss what they saw as a cover-up.
Especially when some users spotted that a local news station explained that the lights were meteors.
The conspiracy carried over to Tumblr, where users began compiling their own theories as to why the bright light appeared.
It was mostly just UFO theories.
Questions, so many unanswered questions.
