A giant fireball tearing through the night sky over Portland was seen by more than 100 people early on Saturday morning. Officials are still not sure what caused the spectacle.
A fiery ball was caught shooting through the sky in Portland Oregon early Saturday morning.
The mystery object was spotted by more than 130 people and has not been identified despite being caught on camera by several viewers.
According to the American Meteorology Society people as far north as British Columbia in Canada witnessed the event and some as far down south as southern Oregon did, too.
Most of the reports came from Willamette Valley.
Jim Todd, director of space education at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, told KOIN 6 News it’s 'hard to say if it was a spacecraft debris or not'.
He added it was 'very bright, lasted for roughly seven to eight seconds'.
'That is fairly fast, and bright white, bluish in color, seems to have broken up into pieces.'
He said the object appeared to be moving west to east.
I wonder if it is a piece of that bit meteor that narrowly missed us the other day.
