A huge fireball (unusually bright meteor or shooting star) streaked across the sky this Thursday AM around 7:05 AM. The map is courtesy of the American Meteor Society and they have a write up on the meteor. They have (at last count) nearly 250 reports of the meteor. If you saw it, you can record your sighting at their website. It looks like the meteor moved from west to east across central Indiana, passing overhead near Indianapolis. The meteor was seen from Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. If you saw it, leave a comment and let us know where you were and what you saw.
