While many of us are doing typical Saturday night stuff (listening to GZA's Liquid Swords, waiting for Donald Trump to host Saturday Night Live), loads of people from Los Angeles and Ventura are going ham on Twitter about what appeared to be a mysterious light that was spotted in California—although some people in Nevada and Arizona said they saw this weird blue light as well.

Even YouTubers Jenna Marbles and her boyfriend Julien Solomita spotted the light:

Twitter, being Twitter, commenced to freaking out about an upcoming alien invasion.

So there was a UFO sighting in Cali tonight? The nerd in me (aka, me) will be researching this all night.

What the hell was it, though? Well, according to the Orange County Sheriff's office, it was just some Naval test fire.

#OCSDPIO: Light seen in OC sky was confirmed through JWA tower to be a Naval test fire off the coast. No further details.

Meanwhile, Malibu-Lost Hills sheriffs say there were some kind of military exercises going down as well.

#LATraffic Alert. Military exercises off of Catalina Island. Lights and lasers can be seen from beach and coastline. No need to call 911

That's a lot of testing on the same night. Whatever the case may be, officials are saying there's no cause for concern. If it IS aliens, though, we hope Michael Jordan is around to settle things Space Jam style.
