"What the heck is that?" asked one witness as he observed the fireball over the night sky.

A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration told a BuzzFeed News reporter he had "no idea" what the light was.

Other officials also seemed baffled by the light.

Neither a spokesperson for NASA or the Pentagon immediately responded to a request for comment from TheBlaze.
