A Fireball Was Seen In Sky On The West Coast and People Are Freaking Out

Social media is lighting up with reports from Nevada, Utah and California of a small fireball streaking across the sky. People were tweeting photos and videos of the small fiery dot in the sky from northern and southern California as well as Nevada and Utah. 

Officials from Nellis Air Force Base in southern Nevada claim that the light seen Wednesday night was actually a meteor breaking up. Dr. Ed Krupp, director of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, claims it may have been a meteor from the Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower, which is peaking on Wednesday night. 

Interestingly enough, we have also heard conflicting reports that it may be a Chinese missile that was being tested.
