Some people in Los Angeles might have been convinced that Doomsday is right upon us. Is it an asteroid? A burning plane? Is it a UFO at last?
No…It’s just Red Bull.
ABC 7 just revealed a couple of hours ago that a pair of wingsuit flyers that were sponsored by Red Bull managed to lit up the skies over LA at twilight.
It was also revealed that the wingsuits left a trail of flames over the downtown LA skyline. On Twitter, people have been going crazy and started reporting that a meteor is hitting them or that a UFO is visiting them.

But a closeup video managed to show two people in wingsuits trailing sparks behind them in the air.
But the thing is that it was not right away clear whether the stunt was done for commercial reasons or another project by the company.
Even the LAPD intervened to reassure the public, tweeting: “PSA: A meteor did not crash into Downtown Los Angeles, and no, it’s not an alien invasion…just a film shoot. This is Tinseltown after all.”

Anyway, people went crazy with excitement on Twitter asking for permission to use various pics for media purposes and more.
Massive meteor explosion detected by the US Air Force but missed by NASA
Speaking of meteorites, we recently reported that the US Air Force recorded a massive meteor explosion in December 2018. It seems that a giant space rock exploded in the Earth’s atmosphere.
Its blast was the second-largest one registered in 30 years and the most significant one since the Chelyabinsk event in 2013.
The meteor explosion was by ten times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima, meaning that, in case of an impact, it could’ve wiped out an entire region of the Earth.
The insane thing is NASA missed it.
