The mystery has been solved - and it's not aliens.
According to a Tweet posted recently, SpaceX deployed its Falcon 9 rocket into space before it touched back down at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
2 News' Chief Meteorologist Mike Collier says the spiral is due to the rocket's second-stage fuel release in the skies.
This marks SpaceX's fifth attempt to launch Falcon 9 after several weather delays and a scrub due to a wayward cruise ship.
