No. It was not a UFO.
It was a rocket launched from the Point Mugu Naval Base. The U.S. Coast Guard Sector of Los Angeles and Long Beach confirmed it was a rocket launched from the base.
#OCSDPIO: Light seen in OC sky was confirmed through JWA tower to be a Naval test fire off the coast. No further details.

And while some may be disappointed that it was not aliens, there is always a chance for that to happen tomorrow night – so keep an eye out.
