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?
