UFO or Meteor? over the Pacific Ocean

Updated: Dec 29, 2019

December 29th, 2019 update:

According to news media sources, this fireball was NOT a meteor... or a UFO. It was debris from the launch of a Chinese rocket from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center on Hainan Island (in South China).









Some people have expressed that there was no "warning" of this event, and wondered about what would have happened if it had been a missile. Would it have been incorrectly dubbed a meteor, too?


Furthermore, if a man-made rocket launch can get mistakenly identified as a meteor, couldn't a UFO (perhaps an "extraterrestrial" spaceship crashing down to earth) get mistaken, too?


Original story:

Videos of a purported, and incredibly big and bright, meteor over the Northern Mariana Islands (north of Guam) surfaced on Twitter several hours ago.


According to the Pacific Daily News, a "possible meteor" landed in the ocean.


(heads up - foul language in some of these videos)

Do you think these videos show a meteor? Or could this be a crashing plane, satellite, rocket, or even a spaceship? If you happen to have seen this "UFO" and have any photos or videos to share, report your sighting here.
