Did you hear this mysterious light in the sky? And did you feel the rattling noise this morning in Phoenix, Arizona?

It was a large meteor streaking through the sky.

As you know, Arizona has already its massive meteor crater.

The gigantic crater of nearly a mile (1.6km) wide and 570ft (174 meters) deep formed as an enormous 98-164ft (30-50 meters) iron asteroid impacted the Colorado Plateau in northern Arizona about 50,000 years ago.

During the impact, an energy of over 2 million tons of TNT” – about 150 times the power of the atomic bomb was released.

But don’t worry, this night’s meteor was much smaller!

  1. I saw this! I live south of Tucson, and from my vantage, it was a fiery red and orange explosion. Even better than the spectacular one I saw last December.
