Residents Of This Town Woke Up To See Very Strange Markings In The Sky

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

A few years ago, one of the hottest UFO conspiracy theories centered around a phenomenon that people began calling "chem trails." Basically, chemtrails are the trails left behind in the sky by aircrafts.

The theory states that the chemicals in these trails are designed to control the population. While it sounds ridiculous, residents living near Vandenberg Air Force Base in California might start revisiting the idea after what they just witnessed.

On Tuesday morning, residents woke up to see these weird clouds in the sky.

Social media was buzzing with speculation about what the bizarre lines could be.

Unfortunately for many UFO enthusiasts out there, this was not the result of an extraterrestrial encounter.

The strange clouds came as a result of a Minuteman missile test that was being performed at the neighboring air force base.

The test sent an unarmed missile all the way from California to the Marshall Islands.

Well, that's much less freaky than I thought it would be. I'll go put my tin foil hat back in the closet.
