Fireball in the Sky

A bright streak of light crossed over Utah's sky late last night around 11:00 pm. I missed it because I was asleep. However, this reminds of me a time when my brother, grandpa, and I were laying on the grass in our backyard probably ten years ago and saw a similar burning fireball. If was loud and the streak nearly crossed the entire sky before fading.

The burning ball of light last night was caused by the remains of a Chinese rocket Yaogan Weixing-26 launched last December. 

The KSL story can be found here.

A list of sightings can be found at the AMS Fireball report page.

If you ever see a fireball you can report the sighting here.
