Weather History for December 1

Strange bright lights were seen across the evening skies of Oklahoma and western north Texas on this date in 2001. Witnesses described the lights as white and blue, and they crossed the horizon from southwest to northeast, then broke apart. The National Weather Service in Norman speculated that it was likely space junk. The North American Aerospace Defense Command later officially confirmed that it was space debris from an expended Russian rocket reentering the atmosphere. The light show was seen in many places including Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Enid, Shawnee, and as far west as the Texas Panhandle, and as far north as Wichita Kansas. is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
