STATES CHRONICLE – On November 14th, a shiny light traveled across the night sky in Phoenix, Arizona, spicing a lot of heated debates on the subject. Apart from the people who enjoyed the show, photographed the event, and posted pictures and videos of it on the internet, there came many others who joked about the object being an UFO. However, not all of them were joking, so many other conspiracy theories arose.
A bright light traveled on the sky of Arizona
Tuesday night, a large glowing light in the form of a bulb traveled quickly through the sky. This event was visible to the residents of Phoenix, Arizona. While the object was most probably a bright meteor which flew by our planet, many people regarded the light as a sign from the aliens.
I just saw a meteor or star or alien or something in the sky in Phoenix. Looked like someone threw a fireball thru the sky.

Some might find it silly, but the inhabitants of Phoenix have enough reasons to be suspicious about such phenomena. This year, they celebrated 20 years since the well-known Phoenix Lights. This event took place in March 1997, when many people claimed to have spotted a series of lights in the sky displayed in a V formation.
People gave rise to new theories on aliens and UFOs
The air force base in Arizona assured everyone those lights were only flares. However, plenty of residents chose to remain skeptical, as they were convinced they came from alien spaceships. Fife Symington, the former governor of Arizona, claims to have seen them, and they looked nothing like an Earth flying machine.
To the disappointment of the fans of UFO theories, the light that had recently traveled on the sky of Arizona was not an alien ship. Laurence Garvie, an expert from the Center for Meteorite Studies at the University of Arizona, said that the appearance and speed of the light perfectly fit the description of a meteor.
Most likely, the light was a bolide. This is a special meteor type which resembles a fireball and, when it explodes, it releases plenty of bright flashes. Even if it left behind a big shiny trace, this meteor was extremely small. In fact, it probably wasn’t bigger than a human.
