Thousands of people looked up into the sky last evening to see a bright light streaking across the skies of Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada last evening. Some speculated that it was a meteor, while others were sure it was a UFO or a comet.

As much as we’d love to report it was a real-life UFO, it appears that it was a Russian rocket debris from an SL-4 body booster. The rocket was launched on Monday, and the booster was re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere over Arizona at 7:08 p.m. local time.

The above video report includes full details.
