A mysterious light was spotted in the sky across California Wednesday night, leaving many people questioning what it was.
NORAD tells NBC affiliate, KNTV, that it is investigating the reports of the light. It says there is no threat to the United States or Canada at this time.
It is possible the light was a meteor or space junk.
There are reports the light was seen in the Bay Area, the Monterey Bay area, and even parts of Nevada.
The reports of the light first surfaced around 5:30 p.m., just minutes before a Delta IV rocket was supposed to launch out of Vandenberg Air Force Base. However, the launch was scrubbed and the base says nothing was launched from its location.
The National Weather Service in Reno posted a time-lapse video showing the light popping up in the sky. The light appears about 9 seconds into the video.
