Strange Light in the Sky Seen Around Colorado
Did you happen to see the strange light in the sky about Grand Junction last night? You're not alone if you saw it. Reports of the light came in from all around Colorado.
9News talked to NORAD last night, and they (NORAD) say it wasn't a threat to the state. Even the agency who keeps an eye out on our skies didn't know what it was.
There is speculation that it could've been parts of Elon Musk's Falcon Heavy rocket that launched Tuesday.
Grand Junction resident, Megan T., shared these photos of the strange light above Grand Junction. Most of the comments on the Facebook post supported the Falcon Heavy theory.
Facebook user, Tysha Keeling, shared these photos and the above video with us, saying, "Idk what it was but it was the coolest thing that I have ever seen in the sky."
Right around the same time that this happened, Elon Musk shared a tweet showing the route of the rocket. During a third burn to push the payload into the Mars orbit, the rocket needed a third burn, which we saw down here.
