-- A slow-moving mystery object lit up parts of the Georgia sky early this morning.
Cooke added that objects will typically have to be moving at 20,000 miles per hour or faster to be classified as a meteor.
Stacey Alexander, 39, saw the bright light move across the night sky for about a minute outside her work building in Rome, Georgia.
“I honestly thought it was a plane that had caught on fire and was about to crash,” she told ABC News today.
“It looked like it just kept getting closer to the ground and was on its way to crashing when it disappeared,” she added.
