Social media lit up last night with reports of a meteor streaking across the skies. Thousands of people across the Southwest from Los Angeles, to Arizona and Las Vegas reported seeing the bright flash streaking across the sky.
What appeared to be a meteor was visible for around 30 seconds before breaking up. US Strategic Command says the fireball was most likely some kind of Russian space debris.
