But don't worry, it was just a cloud.

The video shows a darker colored cloud that was shaped exactly like a flying saucer hovering over the Valley. One user commented, "A cloud? Lol." Another user wrote that it looks like an advertisement for Jordan Peele's film, "Nope." Universal Pictures even got in on the fun with a comment that simply said, "NOPE. ☁️ "

If you're still wondering what kind of cloud it is, 12 News meteorologist Krystle Henderson explained:

"Those clouds are notorious for being described as UFOs.They have a smooth, oval flying-saucer shaped look. They can be singular or stacked like pancakes. If. you Goole lenticular clouds you'll see other photos and see what I mean."

Weather.com says that lenticular clouds form when "relatively stable, fast-moving air is forced up and over a topographic barrier."
