No,
aliens
did
not
touch
down
in
the
Southwest
desert
this
weekend,
but
you
would
be
forgiven
for
assuming
as
much
after
a
bright
purple
glow
enveloped
the
skies
in
Snowflake,
Arizona. 

But
according
to
the
administrators
at
the


Navajo
County
Facebook
page
,
the
abnormal
glow
was
not
extraterrestrial
at
all,
but
the
result
of
a
power-heavy
pot
grow
mixing
with
a
sky-blanketing
snowstorm.

“The
purple
glow
is
a
result
of
UV
lights
from
nearby
medical
marijuana
farm
Copperstate
Farms
and
the
snow
clouds
overhead,”
a
post
on
the
Navajo
County
Facebook
page
read.

Copperstate
operates
a
large
greenhouse
cultivation
site
in
Snowflake
that
employs
more
than
200
people.
According
to
our
community
of
cannabis-growing
friends
over
at


@TheBlacklistxyz
,
though,
the
lights
causing
the
spectacular
glow
are
most
likely
not
UV,
but
LEDs.
And
while
the
licensed
medical
marijuana
farm
has
not
yet
commented
on
the
now-viral
video
of
their
unexpected
light
show,
a
look
back
at
the


company’s
Instagram
page

suggests
that
this
isn’t
the
first
time
they’ve
sparked
up
the
night
sky.

But
while
the
violet
greenhouse
glow
usually
only
lights
up
the
immediate
area
around
the
grow,
a
fresh
dusting
of
snow
and
total
cloud
coverage
made
the
purple
glow
visible
for
miles.

Now
this
is
some
purple
haze
that
would
make
Jimi
proud.
