It was recorded around 11:25pm and it appeared to have landed North East of Saipan waters, according to Kuam News.
While a UFO theory predictably cropped up among the believers, most observers agree it was either a meteor or a piece of space junk – most likely a Chinese booster re-entering the atmosphere following the Long March 5 rocket launch earlier in the day.

Fireball over Guam mistaken for North Korean missile, UFO
“There have been numerous sightings and videos of bright light breaking up over the skies of Saipan and Guam. Based on the videos, it is probably a meteorite breaking up in the sky as it enters the earth’s atmosphere. Some residents also reported hearing explosion during this incident and it is not uncommon. Another possibility is this could be debris from an earlier Chinese rocket or booster test,” the National Weather Service said on its Facebook page.
