Okay, so about 1.5 to 2 hours ago we're driving north on Lake Mary Road south of Mormon Lake. The sky lit up like pre-dawn brightness, then there was a flash bright enough to light the trees. Anyone know #wtf that was? #Arizona
Saw what definitely looked like a plane crash 3 hrs ago in Phoenix. Not the only one who saw it, but can't find anything online outside of crazy UFO sightings. Rational explanations please reply. #PlaneCrash
There is a more logical and scientific explanation for the Phoenix light. Arizona's 12 News reports that the "Leonid meteor shower is active in November, and it is expected to peak later this week." The city government, too, tagged its video with the hashtag #Meteor.
That being said, 12 News does leave room for anyone who wants to believe: "It's not clear whether this flash was related to that meteor shower." Watch the strange Phoenix light again below. Jeva Lange
