UPDATE: missile! – Reports and videos from across the city as streaking lights cross the Seattle skies

Videos showed streaking lights as reports from the Seattle area described something like a meteor appearing to burn the atmosphere, illuminating the night sky over the city on Thursday.

There was no official confirmation of what was causing the brief light show just after 9 p.m., but reports from areas across the city and the Pacific Northwest showed multiple streaks slowly twinkling and grazing across the sky.

We’ll update as soon as we learn more. Let us know if you find any interesting videos and pictures to share.

TO UPDATE: Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, reports that the ad was caused by a SpaceX rocket that burned on re-entry after “not burning any deorbit” and orbiting Earth since early March. It is estimated that a second stage Falcon 9 will cost around $ 10 million. If you want, you can find a little more satisfaction watching those streaks of light burn Elon Musk’s money.
