A large ball of fire streaking across the night time skies just after midnight had many people in Utah wondering what they saw early Wednesday morning.
Dozens of calls came with people wondering if they saw a shooting star, others wondered if it was the end of the world, military testing, or even a UFO.
People from Mona to Spanish Fork from Ogden to Bountiful all calling in a very similar sighting More...
To many, it looked like a large fall of fire, lightning up the sky, some say like daylight, others reported a blue like light that lasted for about 30 seconds.
And many reported hearing a sonic boom about 5 minutes later.
Utah's NASA and Solar System Ambassador Patrick Wiggins said that it was a meteor also known as a bolide.
From his observatory near Stansbury Park he says the break up of the meteor occured at about 240 to 250 degrees azimuth which puts it just north of southwest.
