PHOENIX (KPNX-TV) - A bright light flashed across the sky in Arizona Tuesday night, leaving many people in awe.

Some captured the phenomenon on surveillance cameras.

The City of Phoenix shared this incredible video it captured from one of its skycams.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. local time Thursday, or 10:30 p.m. Indianapolis time.

A twitter user also caught it on a surveillance camera at her house.


The Leonid meteor shower is active in November, and it is expected to peak later this week in Arizona. Officials haven't yet confirmed if this flash was related to that meteor shower.
