Submission + - Meteor explosion lights up sky over Utah (

skulluminati writes: A probable meteor likely exploded over Utah's western desert region Wednesday night, producing a flash that briefly turned night into day over a vast portion of the West.

According to Patrick Wiggins, a NASA ambassador living in Tooele County, the intense light was most likely a bolide meteor, one that becomes a fireball and breaks up.

People in Los Angeles, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Wyoming reported seeing the meteor.
