Fireballs Light Up Sky Over Chile

Last week in Chile several people reported seeing fireballs streak across the sky and land in Chile.

It is still a mystery what the fireballs were, meteorites have already been ruled out.

Not long after the fireballs were seen, there were seven fires on the tiny island of Chiloé off the southern Chilean coast.

Geologists have collected soil samples for a more thorough analysis.

The most likely cause of the fireballs is space junk.
