Watch a FIERY ASTEROID light up the Arizona sky


It was almost like day for a sec. (AB 15/YouTube)

Phoenix, Arizona had an exciting morning--a fireball from space lit up the sky around 4 a.m., causing a sonic boom.

See the fireball below:

Turns out the object was an asteroid about 5-10 feet in diameter. It was traveling at about 40,200 mph when it hit the atmosphere.

Still, chunks of it probably survived and made it to the ground as meteorites.

No injuries or property damage have been reported.
