LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A giant green fireball streaked across the skies of Southern California Tuesday night.

It happened just after 10 p.m. and was captured on dash-cam video, which shows the streak as it gets closer to the ground.

U.S. Strategic Command said it does not believe it was a man-made object.

In a statement, the agency said the object did not appear to be a tracked satellite in their database.

That has led them to conclude the reentry of a man-made object did not occur.

Meanwhile, Dr. Krupp at the Griffith Observatory says they too have no idea what the object was at this time.

Several people called the CBS2/KCAL9 newsroom to report what they had seen.

It was visible from the Mexican border to the northern part of Ventura County.

This is a breaking news report. More information will be added as soon as it becomes available.
