I found this interesting, I sent it to the local news and here is what they came up with;

Ask the Meteorolgist: Space Junk In the Sky
What you saw was a decaying rocket that had helped launch a French telescope. A piece of the rocket landed in Riverton Wyoming but it poses no threat and didn't do any damage.

My E-mail to them:
This morning around 6:15 I saw something soar across the sky. It came from the Northeast, it looked like a meteor, it had a tail and it was very bright!I got my husband and 15 year old son to look at it. Then it broke up into 20 pieces. Each one very bright. It went out of sight in the southeast. It looked like the pictures we see of the space shuttle breaking up. My husband took a few pictures, we'll see if they turn out.I'm sure others must have seen it too. It was amazing! But what was it?

Nice catch, dawgjay.

Bet you were amazed at the sight of that object breaking up. First thing I thought of was the tragic loss of the shuttle and what that looked like when I saw the pic you included

I wasn't sure what to think, but now that you mention that, wow, really brings up alot of feelings, it really look like fireworks, but it was traveling very fast and very bright, I thought it was a meteorite, maybe relating to the one they found in Jersey, thats why I e-mailed the weatherman LOL.

But you get to thinking about it, if it was a ET vehicle and it was shot down, wouldn't this be a brillant cover up story?

Yup...that would work

There's lots of possibilities, but I hope that someone will be able to follow up with more information of this event as people read this thread.

Kudos for alerting the meteorologist. At least there's a record of the observation now and bringing it here to ATS might just provide an answer.

yes it could be a shot down EBE saucer craft .

but there are according to 1999 estimates over 110 thousand peices of debris in orbit

many of these have unstable orbits , and can decay into the earths atmosphere , creating light shows

occams razor is usefull here

space debris , and meteors are accepted facts of life , they happen on a regular basis

if you want to attribute a falling object to " a shot down EBE saucer crafts debris trail " thats fine

but as you are making an extra ordinary claim - it would be usefull to have some evidence beyond mere supposition

, espect skeptics to ask questions such as :

who shot it down ?

why , and how , and with what ?

where did the debris go ?

how was debris recovered , by who , when ?

consider the aftermath of the shuttle columbia breakup

there were thousands of fragments , and a massive operation was lauched to attempt to recover as many as possible

if a EBE craft was shot down , or even crashed - would authorities just ignore it - and make no attempts to investigate ?

I heard that this was going to happen at least a day or two in advance. For example this thread on the BAUT forum posted on Jan 3rd (a day before the event) showing all the telemetry data and an image showing where it was going to fall over.

It seems like it might have been a Russian rocket...

Mosnews: Spent Russian Space Rocket Falls on Western U.S.


Pieces of a spent Russian rocket reentered the atmosphere over Colorado and Wyoming early on Thursday, showering parts of the western United States with space debris, the Reuters news agency reported quoting U.S. space monitors.

Pieces of the Russian SL-4 spacecraft that survived their blazing descent intact most likely landed in southwestern Colorado and northwestern New Mexico, U.S. Northern Command spokeswoman Air Force Major April Cunningham said.

“No damage has been reported and the debris is not believed to be hazardous. It’s also important for the public to understand that the reentry of pieces from this rocket is complete, so in other words, they’re not expecting other pieces to fall,” she said.
