On April 26, popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins posted on Twitter about a strange encounter he had while stargazing with his wife. The Mixer star’s video went viral as he asked his followers what it could be.

Ninja is one of most popular streamers in the world, boasting millions of followers to his channel. The personality made a major move in 2019 when he left Twitch and signed exclusively to Microsoft’s platform.

However, the Mixer star made waves on on social media when he uploaded a video about flashing lights in the sky. The UFO-like encounter had a pretty simple explanation though after his followers solved the mystery.

Ninja details bizarre lights while stargazing

The streamer tweeted out “What the hell did I just see” on the night of April 26. The post included a video where he explained to his fans that he had been stargazing with his wife when something bizarre interrupted the experience.

“I freaking s**t you not. What I thought was the North star, it starts flashing. And like forty dots, they all look like little mini stars just start shooting out of it. And falling in a perfect straight line across the sky,” he exclaimed.

The Fortnite star tried to capture footage of the event, but his camera had failed him. “I tried to get a video. Couldn’t record s**t. My phone wouldn’t pick it up. What the hell is this? What just happened?!”

After many fans replied trying to figure out what it was, Ninja uploaded a single photo to his social media to give viewers a glimpse at the phenomena he and his wife had witnessed.

The mystery, however, seemed to be solved when friend and fellow streamer Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo suggested that it was a satellite by SpaceX that he had seen. YouTuber Jacksepticye confirmed it, linking a video to the Starlink project – which matched up with Ninja’s photo.

The Starlink project was first launched into orbit in March 2018, and was helmed by Elon Musk’s company SpaceX. The project consists of thousands of small satellites which provide internet access. However, seeing the line of dots in the sky can be jarring for the first time.

The Mixer star had not made any further comments on the experience until a day later on April 27 when he tweeted out ‘Aliens’ alongside an extraterrestrial emoji.

Bizarrely, the post coincided with ‘UFO’ – Unidentified Flying Objects’ trending on Twitter at the same time. The term exploded on social media after the Pentagon allegedly released video evidence of them.

The streamer joked about the timing when a follower replied, “After what you saw last night, they had to confirm.” Ninja exclaimed, “The TIMING though.”

While the answer to Ninja’s stargazing mystery was none other then Elon Musk’s satellite, it’s hard to deny the hilariously coincidental timing of UFOs trending on social media the following day.

Extraterrestrials aside, the Fortnite star continues to crush it on Mixer with an insane amount of followers. The streamer has also amassed millions of followers across YouTube and Twitter.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
