LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A pair of wingsuit flyers sponsored by Red Bull lit up the skies over Los Angeles at twilight Wednesday.

The wingsuits left a trail of flames over the downtown L.A. skyline.

Jumpers wearing winged suits and carrying pyrotechnics soared across the downtown Los Angeles skyline, shooting sparks into the air. The wild stunt by Red Bull was to celebrate the final supermoon of the year.

On Twitter, some people reported seeing what they thought was a meteor or even a UFO.

But closeup video showed two people in wingsuits trailing sparks behind them in the air.

It wasn't immediately clear if the stunt was for a commercial or another project by the company.

Even the LAPD sought to reassure the public, tweeting: "PSA: A meteor did not crash into Downtown Los Angeles, and no, it's not an alien invasion...just a film shoot. This is Tinseltown after all."
