ALBAWABA - A mysterious strange light glowed as it glided across the sky over California, sending some people to the street to gaze at the rare event.
A mesmerizing display of lights over Northern California on Friday was caused by the re-entry of flaming space debris into Earth’s atmosphere, experts said. The chunks of communications equipment had been jettisoned from the International Space Station. https://t.co/CrZkdV5YSU pic.twitter.com/Zz0IkDcb8j— The New York Times (@nytimes) March 19, 2023
One of the videos posted on social media platforms said some people believed that the lights were small asteroids. The streaks of light appeared at 9:30 pm California time and continued for about 45 seconds, according to witnesses.
Another clip showed clearer images of the luminous objects, while the photographer stood in amazement, shouting in disbelief at what he saw.
