Meteor Fireball Pierces the Night Sky Over U.S. State of Georgia
Did you see it? Driver Jeremy Wall captured dashcam video of this fireball streaking across on Harrington Road in the Lawrenceville area on May 3.
The meteor was likely part of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower, the first of two celestial light shows that occur every year in early May as a result of Earth passing through dust released by Halley’s Comet. The shower peaks May 5 and 6 with about 10 to 20 meteors streaking across the sky per hour. The best time to catch the show is just before dawn.
