|Space Debris falls out of orbit and burns up.
I first saw this object out the corner of my eye. It was falling from space and burning up. As it fell it kept breaking apart. I knew it wasn't a meteor. The tail was short, orange, red and yellow in color. The main objects were white hot. It disappeared or burned up after about 30 seconds.
I called NBC Charlotte that morning around 0900. They said I was the only person to report it. Someone mentioned a SpaceX launch in Florida that blew up the day before. I thought it was space debris, but now I'm thinking it was a booster falling out of orbit.
