BOSTON -- Many viewers called in to 7News Saturday night with reports about an unidentified "light" in the sky.

Reports of a "flashing light" came in from Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

NASA said the light may have been caused by the launch of a new rocket that took off in Virginia, over 400 miles away.

NASA officials said the rocket is all part of an experiment to test the earth's highest clouds and exhaust particles created the light.
