Recently, a number of "meteors" suddenly appeared over the United States across the sky, and the real identity of these "meteors" has been hotly discussed by American netizens.

It's like an alien invasion! Meteor shower over the United States: suspected SpaceX rocket debris
Subsequently, many netizens in Washington and Oregon witnessed the scene and shared the video online. Netizens have been discussing what this is? Others say that aliens are going to invade the earth.
And that's the official concern. Subsequently, the US National Weather Service (NWS) explained that the mysterious light over the US Northwest Pacific may have been caused by the burning debris of SpaceX mission spacecraft entering the atmosphere and is waiting for further confirmation of relevant details.
The National Weather Service in Seattle also said the scene was more likely caused by space debris than by meteors or similar objects. Because the mobile speed of or is much faster, and this conclusion has been agreed by experts.
Jonathan McDowell of the center for Astrophysics at Harvard University pointed out that the Falcon 9 rocket should be the "real culprit" of the incident.
McDowell said that on March 4, Falcon 9 launched 60 satellite chains. Although the mission was completed, the two-stage rocket failed to derail and burn. After 22 days in orbit, it finally entered the earth's atmosphere and burned, creating a scene similar to a meteor across the sky.
The National Weather Service in Seattle said the debris is not expected to cause damage to the ground.
