UK stargazers left puzzled as they spot mysterious light descending towards Earth
Footage filmed in Manchester, UK, shows Maria Bridgen and the people in her house trying to identify the "bright light" in the sky.
"At first, we thought it was a spotlight from a helicopter but soon realized it was completely silent, and then we started thinking it was a UFO or a meteorite," the filmer shared.
"We were mesmerized and kept staring at the mysterious light until it went out of sight, at which point we started scouting the internet for any other sightings."
She added: "Turns out it was the Atlas V rocket completing its de-orbit burn back into the atmosphere following a spacecraft launch in the USA the day prior. Amazing!"
This footage was filmed on September 27.
