South Korea reveals ‘UFO’ spotting was actually new form of high tech rocket

South Korea has revealed that their recent "UFO scare" was actually a new form of rocket that the country had been developing.

Social media blew up with excitement from various people claiming to have seen a soaring object with a rainbow-coloured vapour trail and mysterious lights attached to it.

Rumours of a suspected alien sighting were passed around, but it appears the military have crushed any chances of that being true and have since claimed ownership of the mysterious object.

A rocket test appears to have been the actual display many saw shooting off into the sky, with the Defence Ministry claiming it was a new form of rocket.

Said form of rocket was a piece that would allow the space-based surveillance of beyond the stars, with the unannounced rocket a chance for the country to bolster its defences.

One Twitter user at the time said: "What is this? Is this a UFO? I'm scared."

As it turned out, it was not a UFO, but an eerie new rocket that took a twisty vapour up into the sky with it, causing a UFO-like sighting for many.

South Korean emergency officials are said to have received hundreds of reports from concerned citizens who were worried about the prospects of alien life on earth.

No citizens were notified of the blast, causing a fair bit of panic online about the chances of alien lifeforms firing off into the skies, but the government's lack of comment comes as a preventive measure.

The launch, which was not announced to members of the public, was said to have been concealed for the purposes of security.

Witnesses had reported a suspicious flying object and mysterious lights across the country, with pandemonium coming from the launch, a follow-up to a previous launch in March.

South Korea's military, who offered an apology for the panic caused, had conducted its first-ever successful launch of a solid fuel rocket, Daily Mail reported.
