"This object disintegrated at an altitude high enough to be seen for hundreds of miles," Jorge Coghlan, director of the Astronomical Observatory of Santa Fe, told the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta, reported NBCNews.com.

Coghlan added that it may have been a space rock, 8 inches in diameter, that entered the atmosphere at a fast speed.
