Meteor In The Midwest

On Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at about 10:00 p.m. there was a meteorite that was seen in Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri. Some have reported seeing it in Ohio and Iowa as well. The meteorite lasted about 15 minutes and carried a large sonic boom. People from all over were concerned and were flooding 911 with calls. The meteorite shower caught on tape was from the Deputy Sheriff of Howard Co., near Waterloo, Iowa. The massive meteor fireball article and video from CNN can tell you more about what happened. I will provide the video for you below so you can watch it here. It has no sound though, but is an awesome sight to see happen, so scroll on down and watch the video.

This picture is from WREG in Memphis, Tennessee. It was taken from the University of Wisconsin's Atmospheric Sciences.
