Aaron Rodgers told the podcast “You Made It Weird,” that he and his buddies saw what could only be described as an unidentified flying object out of Independence Day. He claimed that there was a lot of “fiery clouds” and a ship that flew up inside the giant mother ship.
After the ship disappeared, Rodgers said that military fighter jets flew by, and a local nuclear plant’s sirens started going off. There was no news of the event the next day, which convinced Rodgers and his friends that they had seen some kind of alien space ship.
