(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–Many people in Nevada and in Southern California reported seeing a mysterious light in the sky Wednesday night. The American Meteor Society says it received more than 150 reports from witnesses from people in Arizona , Utah, Southern California and Nevada.

The National Weather Service says the sightings reported starting at about 8 p.m. Wednesday night are most likely associated with the South Taurids meteor shower that has been especially active in early November. Astronomers say the Taurids don’t bring big numbers of visible meteors but a high percentage of extremely bright ones that look like fireballs.
