 · Mystery fireballs were spotted across Utah, Nevada and California
 · They streaked past the sky as many feared they could be a plane disintegrating or some guessed it was a meteor shower
 · The objects were later revealed to be debris from a Chinese rocket launch
 · The objects were traveling at about 18,000mph some 50 miles overhead  

犹他、内华达、加利福尼亚上空发现神秘火球
划破长空的火球让不少人担心这是飞机解体或是流星雨
这些东西后来发现时中国的火箭发射后的碎片
这些东西在50英里(注:约80公里)的上空以每小时18000英里(注:约3万公里/小时)的速度飞驰

Thousands of people across three US stateswatched the night sky in awe on Wednesday as mystery fireballs streaked past.

周三,美国三个州有上千人目睹这些神秘火球划破长空。

Many feared they could be a planedisintegrating while others guessed it was a meteor shower.

有不少人担心这是飞机解体或可能是流星雨。

It was later revealed the objects ablaze —seen in Utah, Nevada and Californiia — were debris from the Chinese rocketlaunched last month and were travelling at around 18,000mph, about 50 milesoverhead, the LA Times reported.

据洛杉矶时报报道:犹他、内华达、加利福尼亚上空出现的这些发光物体应是中国上月火箭发射后的残骸,该物体在50英里(注:约80公里)的上空以每小时18000英里(注:约3万公里/小时)的速度飞飞行。

据洛杉矶时报报道:犹他、内华达、加利福尼亚上空出现的这些发光物体应是中国上月火箭发射后的残骸。

The launch, which began a new era inChinese rocketry, re-entered the atmosphere after a month in low orbit,astronomer Jonathan McDowell, of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center forAstrophysics, told the Times. 

天文学家哈佛-史密森天体物理中心的乔纳森麦克道尔告诉泰晤士报,这是中国的新一代火箭,在低轨道运行一个月后,重入大气层的结果。

'Something this big enters in anuncontrolled way probably once a month,' McDowell told the Times. 

马克道尔想泰晤士报说道“隔了一个月后,这些大号物件以一种不可控的状态进入(大气层)”。

'Mostly they fall into the ocean — theEarth is a big place. The chance that you get one at night, over the U.S. attime when people look at the sky — it is relatively low.'

“它们大多都坠入大海里,地球很大的”,当时在美国、人们夜空看到的那次,那是飞的想对较低。

Onlookers were stunned as the flamingobjects, which resembled comets, were seen flying over LoneMountain Park, with other witness also spotting them in southern Californiaand Utah.  

围观群众被这个通身是火的东西吓坏了,这个类似于于彗星东西,在(内华达)孤山公园,以及加利福尼亚南部和犹他州均被人们目睹。

One man who filmed the jaw-droppingspectacle can be heard exclaiming: 'This is unreal. What is that? What is that?

从一个男子拍的这段令人震惊的视频中可以听到, “太梦幻了,那是什么?那是什么?”

'I don't know what that is. Well obviouslyit's something entering the atmosphere but I've never seen anything like thatbefore.'

“我不知道那是啥。很明显这是进入大气层的东西,但我从没有见过这样的。”

He later described the flying object as'humongous'.

他后来把它形容为“巨型飞行物。



Debris was flying at a bout 18,000mph some50 miles overhead, an expert said

专家表示:碎片在50英里(注:约80公里)的上空以每小时18000英里(注:约3万公里/小时)的速度飞飞行。

Shortly after the man posted his videoonline, people quickly began to form ideas on what the mysterious object couldbe.

这个人在网上发布了这段视频后,人们很快对这个神秘物体到底是什么东西开始胡乱猜测。

A sensible suggestion was that thefireballs were part of the annual meteor shower DeltaAquarid, which peaks between July 27 and 29.

一个比较靠谱的提议是,这个火球是一年一次的Delta Aquarid流星雨的一部分,Delta Aquarid流星雨通常在7月27日至29这段时间出现。

However, astronomers have said that thiswas unlikely because the object was not moving at a quick enough speed.

然而,天文学家们表示,这-是不可能的,因为这个东西移动的速度还不够快。



This June 25 rocket launch, which began anew era in Chinese rocketry, provided the debris seen across the Ameriuan nightsky 

在美国夜空看见的可能是,7月25日中国发射的新一代火箭。(注:原文‘美国’应该是拼错了)
