Sightings of the meteor were reported across Southern California, from Santa Barbara to San Diego and as far east as Arizona.
A woman in San Diego was video chatting with a friend when it suddenly flew by behind her.
"Did you guys see that? Did you guys see that?" the woman said in shock.
9-1-1 was inundated for a while with people thinking the meteor was an airplane crash in Hesperia, but no wreckage was found.
