Large fireball seen acoss six Midwestern U.S. States

October 1, 2013OHIOA brilliant fireball lit up the skies over the Midwestern United States, treating bystanders on the ground to an amazing light show last Friday (Sept. 27). The cosmic display came courtesy of a meteoroid traveling at about 114,000 miles per hour (51 km/s) that crashed into Earth’s atmosphere high above Columbus, Ohio. The light show could be seen in 14 states. “This was a very bright event,” Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office told Spaceweather.com. “Flares saturated our meteor cameras, and made determination of the end point (the terminus of the fireball’s flight through the atmosphere) virtually impossible. Judging from the brightness, we are dealing with a meter class object.” The bright event amazed people who happened to be watching from the ground. As of Sept. 28, the American Meteor Society received more than 450 reports of the fireball sighting with more than 400 still yet to be reviewed. “It was the most brilliant fireball that I have ever seen,” Angela McClain told Spaceweather.com. “The entire landscape lit up. I spun around and there it was, a huge, bright green light, streaking across the sky. Even when it was gone, there was still a bright line in the sky about 20 seconds later. We were all stunned.” Friday’s fireball may not have been the only major meteoroid event witnessed in the Midwest last week. On Sept. 26, the AMS got more than 730 reports of a separate fireball sighting in Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana and Wisconsin. –Space

    Thank you so very much! It is amazing to be able to witness events prophesied thousand of years ago. I love your emails and always try to open them first.

    God bless you!

    Dear Ext Pro, The unusual number of fireballs recently could be space weapon tests of Brilliant Pebbles or Smart Rocks, projectiles that cause damage by kinetic energy rather than explosive warhead. They act like meteors that strike ground targets. The object that impacted Russian military industrial site a few months ago may have been the same. During the Cold War warmongering competition mankind live tested over 700 nuclear weapons, many in the Soviet USSR Arctic, some clearing ice for navigation (global warming?). Now we could be involved in similar tit for tat testing of space weapons. JAKemp Political and Aerospace Scientist USAF Nuclear WMD Officer Veteran

    I missed this here in Ohio. I’m always looking up at the sky at night but I never see anything amazing. Well, maybe next time.

    That being said, there have been an awful lot of fireball sightings recently. I read about one that was seen across the southeastern states and last night I read about a sighting in the New England area. I’ve heard all kinds of theories about all of these sighting ranging from falling space debris to pieces from Comet Ison. Fascinating.

    There was also a similar meteor sighting Saturday night across the southeast. North Alabama in particular had people reporting the streak, several at the football games.

    I have read on several sites regarding numerous fireball or meteor sightings. Some of these could be the same sighting, just seen by a large bunch of folks. Has anyone heard of any strikes?
    Are these part of a larger object?
    There was an non confirmed report that a meteor exploded over Ohio and two people were killed?
