It was an interesting event, indeed, although I am still attempting to sort out all of the reports and facts, to determine what the object may have been. NUFORC received a report from San Diego 9-1-1, reporting that they had received approximately eight reports, including one from a retired law enforcement officer. All the witnesses reported how dramatic, and bizarre, the object appeared, although some reported that it appeared to be shedding material as it passed overhead. Two witnesses in Phoenix reported that the object was almost the apparent size of the Moon, and that it had been visible for an estimated 45-50 seconds. If those time estimates are correct, almost certainly, the object was not a meteor. Meteors typically are traveling at 12-50 statute miles per second, when they first enter the atmosphere, which makes a meteor sighting of that duration quite unlikely. I have not ruled out the possibility of re-entering space debris, but those events usually are accompanied by statements from NORAD, which apparently did not occur for this incident. NUFORC should have all of the reports it received posted to our site by Sunday. Peter NUFORC Listen to 'Strange Days...
