New Yorkers thought a UFO had landed after an eerie blue pulsating light lit up the night sky. Authorities said it was a transformer explosion in Queens. The explosion caused scattered power outages, delayed flights and sparked a social media storm of jokes and memes about an alien invasion. Some drew parallels to their favourite sci-fi hits like 'Independence Day' while others referred to the Death Star in 'Star Wars'. Thankfully, no injuries or earthlings have been reported missing.
