(KHON) — A light show in the sky had folks talking overnight.
Our newsroom started getting calls and emails around 11 p.m. Sunday of what some viewers described as a “meteor shower” in the southeastern sky.
People from Kona to Hilo, and Hawaii Kai to Ewa Beach, all reported seeing the same lights in the sky going from south to north.
Dr. Eugene Stansbery of the NASA Orbital Debris Program Office said that “according to information released by the Dept. of Defense’s Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the object was likely the Cosmos 1315 payload launched in 1981.”
