A man shared a video of a ‘flying item on fire’ above Los Angeles, California, on his Twitter account.
Dennis Hegstad shared a video clip of a weird flying object with the caption: “What is this flying item on fire above downtown Los Angeles?”
But, Dennis was not the only one who witnessed this weird flying object. Another Twitter user shared: “Holy shit just saw a meteor fall from downtown LA on the 10 East #wtf.”
One commented on his post: “Saw it too. Thought we were done.”
Finally, Red Bull admitted that they shot for the supermoon and got mistaken for a meteor.
Red Bull explained in a statement:
“Wearing wingsuits that shape the human body into an airfoil, they leaped from a helicopter 4,000 feet above LA and swooped into downtown at more than 120 mph,”
“To add a touch of Hollywood glitz, the suits were fitted with LED lights and sparking pyrotechnics that lit up the night sky as the sunset and the supermoon rose.”
“Travelling three feet forward for every one foot down, their southwestern one-mile flight took them past the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown hotel – which at 1,100 feet – is the tallest building west of Chicago.”
“They finally pulled their parachutes at 1,000 feet and landed safely on the city streets below in the first ever wingsuit jump into downtown Los Angeles.”
Red Bull later posted the picture of the skydivers and wrote: Internet, meet the “meteor”.
The Los Angeles Police Department also took to Twitter and wrote:
“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.”
