During a traffic stop in Little River, Texas on Wednesday, a police cruiser dash cam caught the image of a bright light streaking across the night sky, leading some to speculate that a UFO may have been caught on tape.

But according to the FAA, the bright light was, in fact, a meteor burning up in Earth’s atmosphere. Or is that just what they want us to think? The truth is out there! Maybe it’s tied into those strange noises people have been hearing around the world.
