An object that may have been a meteor was seen streaking across the sky on Wednesday night, September 14, 2011.
But what exactly was seen in the skies across the Southwestern U.S. Wednesday night? Was it indeed a meteor or, perhaps something more mysterious?
NASA officials announced this week the now-defunct Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is expected to fall back to Earth in the coming weeks. There was no word on whether what was seen Wednesday was that satellite.
Reports say that the object was seen in Southern California, Arizona and Nevada in the United States.
