Nearly 500 Report Seeing Meteor in Southeastern US
Just a few hours after a meteor fireball was recorded on dash cam over Wisconsin another one is seen. This time seen over Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
“Some 495 people in eight states reported seeing a slow and bright fireball about 6:50 a.m. Most reports to the American Meteor Society came from North Carolina and South Carolina.
The group says it also received reports from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia.
A week earlier, the AMS received over 260 reports from people in 14 states about a fireball above the Ashokan Reservoir in New York.
Meteors peak in April. They’re pieces of rock that vaporize when they enter the Earth’s atmosphere and turn into streaks of light.”
