Early speculation was that it might have been debris from two satellites -- one American, one Russian -- that rammed into each other in space a week ago.
But the U.S. Strategic Command, which tracks satellite debris, said it was not. "There is no correlation between those reports and any of that debris from the collision," command spokeswoman Maj. Regina Winchester told CNN Monday.
