WHAT WAS THAT?! Bright light streaks across sky

Posted at 7:28 AM, Jun 02, 2016


A huge streak of light brightened the sky early Thursday morning, prompting worry and curiosity from many Phoenix-area residents.

The first reports came in right around 4 a.m. from around the Valley and even in areas like Yuma, Flagstaff and Pine Top, Arizona. Several callers also reported feeling the ground shake.

Phoenix-based KNXV is actively looking to verify whether a meteor was the source of a light and if so, if there are any impact sites.
