Early evening on Monday (Feb. 23) my family and I spotted something strange in the sky above Twin Falls. Twin Falls is so close to Mountain Home and we are used to seeing jets all around the Magic Valley, but this seemed just a little different to me.

After some mild fascination, I dismissed the object as a plane. But later that evening, I started seeing reports from Idaho and other states along with pictures that looked exactly like the object witnessed by my family and I.

One report stated that NASA indicated that it was a Chinese rocket used to launch a satellite in December of 2014 and it was reentering the atmosphere.

What's interesting to me is that the reports and footage I've seen coming from around Twin Falls state the object was spotted around 11:00pm. The only difference between my experience and the others seemed to be the time of day. The object we witnessed appeared several hours before--somewhere around 6:30 to 6:45pm.

Could this be the same space junk that was being reported all over Idaho and the Northwest last night?
