KTNV Channel 13 Las Vegas reports they are getting several calls about a mysterious lights moving horizontally across the sky.
US Strategic Command Notification
U.S. Strategic Command’s Joint Functional Component Command for Space (JFCC Space), through the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC), removed a Russian SL-4 rocket body from the U.S. satellite catalog as a decayed object after it reentered the atmosphere yesterday over North America (vicinity Arizona) at approximately 1908 MST. In addition to this object, the JSpOC tracks 16,000 other on-orbit cataloged objects, which are listed in USSTRATCOM’s Satellite Catalog and the publicly-available website www.Space-Track.org. That service is a key element of our commitment to provide situational awareness for spaceflight safety. The effects of the atmosphere on reentering objects preclude the JSpOC from accurately tracking any reentries after initial contact with the atmosphere occurs. Questions about the rocket body should be directed to Russian authorities, particularly Roscosomos (Russian Federal Space Agency).

Multiple white light objects have been reported in Ventura and Bakersfield, California and Las Vegas. The objects are moving horizontally and are moving slower than meteors.
One witness reported two small objects flying next to the larger object.

On November 7, 2015 several people captured cellphone video of a bright object over Ventura County. The US Navy later confirmed that the mysterious “meteor” or UFO was a scheduled Trident II ballistic missile test flight. Cmdr. Ryan Perry of the Navy’s Third Fleet said in a statement that the rocket was launched from the Kentucky Ohio-class submarine in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California.
