Some people watching the SpaceX live stream reckon they've spotted flying objects that aren't the SpaceX rocket that was carrying two NASA astronauts.
That's right, some viewers think they've clocked some UFOs at various points of the live stream, with one person sharing a clip from the event on Twitter, writing: "Did y'all see the #ufo on camera today..... watch this!!! We just saw this!! This is us recording from our tv! #SpaceLaunchLIVE #SpaceX."
Someone else said: "Did anyone see those flashing lights as the dragon separated from the module out in space? Possible UFO? #SpaceX."
Another tweeted: "I saw at least 3 different UFO's that did not resemble or move like space debris during the #SpaceX launch."
Was that a ufo or something? at time T+ 00:14:11. It was rising from under the clouds so fast! #LaunchAmerica #SpaceX #ElonMusk pic.twitter.com/9Q0vliN1a3

UFO expert Pedro Ramirez wrote on his Facebook page: "May 30, 2020. So far two UFOs have been detected during launch, the first of them can be observed very close to the stratosphere, the next one seems to be closer to the Crew Dragon, however we are still checking the captured material from ground by the fans.
"During the mission's development, we will be looking out for everything that could arise around UFOs in space, especially those who may be close to the time of coupling with the ISS... It's time to believe."
The rocket was launched yesterday - after the first attempt earlier in the week had to be scrapped due to bad weather - and successfully docked at the International Space Station today.
This Demo-2 mission is a way of SpaceX showing that it can safely take astronauts to the International Space Station, and get them back in one piece. It represents the final step on SpaceX's journey to being certified by NASA's Commercial Crew programme for regular flights carrying astronauts to the International Space Centre.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk said he was 'overcome with emotion' watching his rocket successfully launch after many years of hard work.
The billionaire said: "I'm really quite overcome with emotion on this day. It's kind of hard to talk, frankly. I've spent 18 years working toward this goal, so it's hard to believe that it's happened.
"It is a little hard to process. I think at this point I haven't sorted out my emotions.
"This is hopefully the first step on a journey towards civilisation on Mars, of life becoming multi-planetary, a base on the moon and expanding beyond Earth."
