VICTORVILLE:( Many Victor Valley residents posted to Victor Valley News Facebook group inquiring about a colorful object streaking across the night sky.

The object described as colorful and round fireball streaked across the western sky heading west just after 6:15 P.M., on Tuesday, December 22, 2015.

Below are a few of the comments posted by Victor Valley News members:

“It looked like a comet because it changed colors. Green to red. It was really cool,” stated Todd N Zabrina Martin.

“It looked like something entering the atmosphere and breaking up, reminded me of when the space shuttle burned up,” stated Jim Pryor.

Early unconfirmed reports are describing the “object” as a meteor or space debris (i.e. satellite) that was seen over several states including Nevada, Arizona and California. As of 6:30 P.M., there has been no official confirmation on what exactly the unidentified object was.

More information will be updated as it becomes available.
