Date of Sighting: May 14, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:45 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Gravelly, Arkansas (W. Arkansas About 60 MI WNW of Little Rock)

Description: I was riding my 4 wheeler on a perfectly clear night. I was rounding a curve and something caught my eye. I turned my attention to the sky. It was almost like two fireballs side by side traveling north. The fireballs completely lit up the sky. They seemed to be stretched out traveling fast, and in an instant they were gone. I have two friends who were looking at the same thing and wondering what we had just seen.

Note: The report sounds like that meteors or space junk were sighted. It is less likely that two meteors would be sighted together (unless they broke up from one meteor). Space junk entering the atmosphere is another possible explanation. Two satellites had decaying orbits on May 14, 2009. However, it is not known if the satellites entered the atmosphere on May 14 and if they did whether or not the entry would be visible from Arkansas.
