Many residents in Palm Beach County are asking what was that bright light that streaked across the South Florida sky last night? Several videos of a bright object falling through the sky over West Palm Beach were posted on Twitter last night, and many were wondering what it was.

Experts say it was an asteroid traveling 16-thousand miles an hour called 2021 GW4. It came within 93-hundred miles of Earth, one of the closest approaches in recent memory.
