SALT LAKE CITY — A fast moving meteor lit up the night skies over most of Utah just after midnight Wednesday.

KSL News received hundreds of calls from people who saw it, from southern Utah to southern Idaho. There also are reports of people seeing it from Las Vegas and areas of California. Witnesses reported a flash so bright it lit up the entire sky for a couple of seconds.

Don White was in Wyoming and told KSL Newsradio for a moment he suspected a nuclear strike. \"With something that brilliant and that fast, it was like, whoa, did we just get hit or something? It would have been some bigger noise I guess if a nuclear device had gone off,\" he said.

\"It lasted for about eight to 10 seconds,\" he continued. \"I think for about the last three to four seconds of that it was as light as day. I could see the bushes off to the right of the road. It was completely lit up. You\'ll see the meteors flying across the sky and everything, but I\'ve never seen one come that close.\"

Some people also reported a slight rumbling sound a few seconds after the flash. One caller told us it knocked a few items off her shelf.

Was basically a large meteor entering our atmosphere and exploded and fell apart while in the atmosphere. None of it hit the ground though.

People could see in the UT, NV, CA, ID.
