Debris from a SpaceX rocket illuminates the sky

On the afternoon of Thursday, March 25, 2021, An Oregon Newberg resident recorded a light emission caused by the wreckage of a SpaceX rocket as it returned to the atmosphere. It was debris from the second stage of a Falcon 9 rocket. “What is seen in the sky is a rocket that falls into the atmosphere at a speed of over 27.000 km / h and crumbles from the heat” said Jonathan McDowell, from the Harvard Astrophysics Center. No damage has been reported.
