Satellite's Reentry Creates Fireball in Skies Above Michigan

NASA said on October 20 that a “bright, long-lasting” fireball reported in the early hours in US Midwestern states was caused by the “reentry and fragmentation of a satellite” rather than a “natural object”.

Brian Mersmann said he recorded this video of the fireball trailing across the sky in Mount Pleasant, central Michigan, at 12:43 am. Credit: Brian Mersmann via Storyful
