TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There was a strange light in the skies above Arizona, in fact around the U.S. and many people were wondering what it was, so were we. 

The answer is a simple one, it's the SpaceX solar orbit insertion burn.  

Here is a look at it from the MMT Observatory on Mt. Hopkins, a joint facility of the Smithsonian Institution and the University of Arizona. 

This wasn't a regular rocket that launched on Tuesday, it was the Falcon Heavy, the world's most powerful operational rocket that will eventually orbit around the sun. The strange light in the sky was just the upper stage of the rocket.
