While cruising on a self-driving Tesla is an experience of its own kind, one Jordan Nelson was quite stunned when his vehicle kept slowing down abruptly. Later, claimed Nelson, he realised the car was mistaking the moon for a yellow traffic light. Taking to Twitter, Nelson tweeted a video of the glitch, tagging the company CEO Elon Musk.

“Hey@elonmusk you might want to have your team look into the moon tricking the autopilot system. The car thinks the moon is a yellow traffic light and wanted to keep slowing down,” read the caption of the post along with the 23-second clip, which garnered over 1 million views.
