"Reports of a meteor in the Southwest"
Source: MyDesert.com

Some Coachella Valley residents spotted something that looked to be falling from the sky tonight, amid reports of a meteor in the Southwest.

It looked like a falling star that continued falling toward the mountain, a Desert Sun reporter in south Palm Springs said.

The Scottsdale Airport tower told police they saw meteor activity around 7:45 p.m., the Arizona Republic reported.

Twitter users from Las Vegas to San Diego have also reported spotting the unusual activity in the sky.

Okay did anybody else see the giant #meteor or #UFO that fell out of the sky 15 minutes ago? @ FRUTRON Tweeted.

The National Weather Service said it had not heard of any meteor activity, the Gannett-owned Phoenix paper added.

2. The UFOs are looking for Intelligent Life
They flew over Arizona, saw Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and decided that all Earthlings were that obnoxious.

10. She wasn't falling but...there she was, minding everybody else's business, when...


As soon as scientists finish examining the strange meteorite, they plan to check to see if Sarah's okay.
