A few people across Southern California were startled to see a green fireball
in the night skies Tuesday.

Around 10 p.m., according to a report by CBS Los Angeles, the fireball
was caught on dash cam video as it streaked toward the ground. The object
could be seen from the Mexican border to the northern part of Ventura

What was it? U.S. Strategic Command says it does not believe that the
fireball was a man-made object. In a statement, the agency said the object
did not appear to be one of the agency's tracked satellites.

Ed Krupp of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles also said he had no
idea what the object might have been.
