Possible meteor reported off the coast of Florida

February 18, 2013FLORIDA - Florida residents reported seeing a flickering light falling off the state’s eastern coast last Tuesday night, raising curiosity over whether Earth has played host to yet another meteor. Crowd-sourced reports on the American Meteor Society’s website generally stated the falling light happened sometime after 6:30 p.m. local time, with sightings from Cocoa, Fla., all the way down to Miami. NBC-6 in Miami showed witness video of a falling, flickering light, burning brighter and moving slower than most small shooting stars. Local media reported that the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Coast Guard said they received calls about a flashing light, with the Coast Guard reporting that they couldn’t find a flare or a boat in distress. The Florida sighting joins another sighting off the West Coast on Friday night and, of course, the huge meteor that flashed over Russia’s Ural Mountains on Friday, creating a shock wave that broke windows and injured hundreds. The Russian object, the remains of which are now being collected, is thought to be the largest to hit Earth in a century. About 100 tons of rock and particles as minuscule as a grain of sand hit Earth’s atmosphere and burn up on entry every day, according to NASA. Vehicle-sized meteors that create an “impressive fireball” arrive about once a year. –LA Times

    It was not one. I live in Polk County FL and just came in from the back of the property and there was a hand full of meteors. Just over a two minute time span I saw about 5 all heading the same path as the one from the other night.

    It is not a possible meteor ,it was a meteor seen by eye witnesses including a local reporter from America Teve channel 41 , as well as people who live in condominiums in Miami beach.

    Meteors…. You need to add that to the list of categories on the right side of the page Alvin. Is this week the first such event since you started this site?

    It’s getting a bit weird with all of this. I’m not one to just say it but I keep thinking the book of Revelation.

    Climate contradiction: Less snow, more blizzards
    But the answer lies in atmospheric physics. A warmer atmosphere can hold, and dump, more moisture, snow experts say. And two soon-to-be-published studies demonstrate how there can be more giant blizzards yet less snow overall each year.

    My husband and I saw a meteor similar to this one in description the night before last. We live in Northern AZ and have a great view of the stars out here. It was quite a sight!

    It’s for our own good — right??

    reports comming from the west coast of florida. in the tampa area, things are getting pretty interesting, stay tuned.

    Why was it “moving slower than most shooting stars?”

  11. Gabriel says:

    It is really laughable that NASA and others are calling these meteor sightings a coincidence with the passing of DA14 on Friday (15th). Isn’t it obvious we’re passing through a swath of loose debris in the solar system yet? That’s what I believe anyway.
