The meteor that crossed the Midwest on the night of October 13 was almost certainly the re-entering remains of a Russian Proton Rocket, as originally claimed by NASA a few days after the incident.

In reality, the descent took place many miles to the north. It is possible that NORAD claimed that they had not tracked the object for security reasons.
