Amazing video of a bright fireball crashing into the earth has been featured on many news outlets. Along with the footage are photos of the crash site, which show metal spheres. Sources now say this "UFO" or "meteor" was really a piece of a satellite, in other words it was space junk.
As of 2016, the United States Strategic Command claims to track a total of 17,852 artificial objects in earth’s orbit, including 1419 operational satellites. That's a lot of potential space junk.
TexasUFOs has reported on many astonishing "meteor/UFO" crashes this month, from the meteor that caused an earthquake in Michigan to the meteor that exploded over Russia, turning night into day and causing the ground to shake. And to make matters eerier, all of this incredible sky activity is happening less than a month before the anniversary of the 2013 Valentines Day meteor over Russia, which injured thousands of people who were living in or visiting the Ural Mountains at the time.
With cases like these, it is difficult to know whether not we are looking at a meteor or "space junk" or crashing spacecraft!
If this "meteor" was really a piece of a satellite, could other "meteors" that have been reported on by the media also have been space debris?... Could a space storm launch our own satellites (known and MIA) and spacecraft right back at us? Or could there be a secret space war raging above our heads, as the late astronaut Edgar Mitchell suggested?

1/17/18 Update: Photos and videos are circulating online of the meteor reported to have directly hit Michigan on January 16th. Also, news reports are continuing to surface about the meteor impact, which caused houses to shake (earthquakes), loud booms to be heard in the air, and more.
Right after reporting about a mysterious fireball and power outage in parts of the US, reports of a large fireball seen over Michigan, which was so large as to cause houses to shake, was reported. What is especially eerie about all of this unusually dramatic sky activity, is it is all occurring about a month before the anniversary of the 2013 meteor impact in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia that injured thousands, and just days after another similar meteor explosion in Russia.
Just as in Russia this year and in 2013, this meteor lit up the entire night sky!
Do you think this fireball is a sign of rockier times to come? Will we see another scary fireball show on Valentines Day this year?
Are these large meteors a sign of weather change, or even space war? Share your meteor photos and videos with TexasUFOs, and share your opinions about them in the comments or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
According to video and testimony shared on an online forum, multiple reports of a fireball over the US were posted to Facebook, and along with it, many citizens experienced a brief flickering of lights. The bright meteor-like object was apparently spotted all over the countryside, from Texas to North Dakota, and during the same time frame, lights flickered in homes across Iowa and Nebraska, and possibly in New York too:

Curiously enough, there were many verified reports of fireballs over Colorado, according to AMSMeteors.org, but they were from January 16th, a night after these events.
What do you think of these eyewitness reports of a fireball, followed by mysterious but brief power outages? Could the events be related? Did you happen to see this fireball (or "UFO") as well? Share your photos or videos!

Jan 7th, 2018 Update: New photos of strange lights appearing near the SpaceX rocket have been submitted to MUFON (case 89382)... what could these lights be, UFOs, drones, reflections? If you live in California and witnessed the SpaceX launch on December 22nd, let me know if you saw any UFOs!
December 29th, 2017 Update: A new report and photo of strange green lights showing up alongside the surprising SpaceX rocket launch has been filed with MUFON (case 89155). This time, the witness was in Gardena, California. Compare the latest photo to the others below:
After the launch of a SpaceX rocket on December 22nd, 2017, many reports of a UFO were made as Californians were not expecting such a nighttime spectacle. Not to mention, the event occurred just a week after the New York Times reported on the Pentagon funding a secret, modern-day UFO research program.
However, even those who knew about the SpaceX news story still question it. Could a UFO really have been spotted over California, and did Elon Musk just help with a cover story? Or was the SpaceX rocket launch timed on purpose to occur after the New York Times article, in order to see how people would react?
Now, things get even weirder. Two separate witnesses (see MUFON cases 89100 and 89034) in West Hills and Westminster, California snapped of photos of strange green, unidentified lights alongside the headline-making SpaceX rocket:
It's very possible that these lights are simply lens artifacts or camera reflections, however considering that Elon Musk himself recently suggested a UFO (or mystery drone) was the cause of one of his past SpaceX rocket explosions, these photos are worth some investigation.

Did you watch the SpaceX rocket launch? Did you also see these strange lights? Report your sighting!
An extremely large cone-shaped, explosive object was seen ascending over Los Angeles, according to multiple eyewitness reports, photos and videos.
Fortunately it was not aliens invading, and unfortunately it was not Santa making an early visit, but just the SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket, carrying a load of communications satellites.
Luckily fellow UFO researcher Ryan Sprague was one of the many witnesses to capture some footage;
Not all of SpaceX's rocket launches have gone well. TexasUFOs once covered the explosion of a SpaceX rocket that may have been caused by an attacking UFO or drone, a story now all the more interesting considering the New York Times recent coverage of the Pentagon's secret UFO program!
