Suspected Space Debris Wows Seattle Residents as It Streaks Through Night Sky

Suspected space debris delighted residents in Seattle, Washington, on March 25, streaking across the night sky.

Footage shot by local man Fred Lu, who said he was on his roof when he noticed “lights flying eastward,” shows the bright objects gliding over the Seattle skyline.

“While we await further confirmation on the details, here’s the unofficial information we have so far. The widely reported bright objects in the sky were the debris from a Falcon 9 rocket 2nd stage that did not successfully have a deorbit burn,” the National Weather Service (NWS) Seattle tweeted.
