The night sky across Michigan and parts of Northern Ohio was lit up last night by a meteor.
The American Meteor Society has said that this was a slow moving fireball, passing through earth’s atmosphere at 28,000 miles per hour.
The brightness of the fire ball and the speed suggests that it was a fairly large rock. A sonic boom was even heard, and the American Meteor Society suspects that pieces of meteorite could be found on the ground north of Ann Arbor.
The event happened at 8:08 p.m. on Tuesday night and was visible from 7 states, as well as in Canada. There were also reports of a sonic boom, which was heard throughout Michigan. U.S. Geological Survey officials say the boom likely registered a 2.0 magnitude earthquake felt in Michigan.
