Posted: 9/5/2014
Location: Rapid City, SD
Shape: Formation
Duration:20 seconds
Not a UFO per se, but one giant ball of light breaking up over a 20 second period of time traveling in one direction until it was between 25-40 streaks of light, still traveling in a column formation due north.

It was a large meteorite type object that broke apart over Rapid City, SD, and disintegrated ...

No plain or simple shooting star or fire ballon or seasonal meteor shower. This was an impact on the atmosphere that blew me away, and my girlfriend too! Like a Hollywood movie of a UFO breaking up in space crashing into earth! It was THAT cool!

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the event might have been caused by re-entering space debris. If the estimate of the duration of the event is accurate, the object probably was not a meteor
