Flame Midwest fireball ignites buzz

A fireball, aliens, or an airplane-- those were some of the dozens of comments on the WZZM 13 Facebook page Thursday morning after an explosion of light in the sky.

Flame Woman catches fireball meteor on camera

A fireball meteor caught the attention of many Friday night across the east coast.

Scientists say events like this can be rare to see and even harder to catch on camera. But one Ohio resident was able to do that.

I've never managed to see a fireball like that. There have been at least one or two in the UK in the last few years that I could potentially have seen, but I didn't. Maybe I should go outside and lie on hills at night a bit more - we have enough of them around here.

Flame

I've seen one, and it was while I was in Toronto. Was heading out for an evening run in 2011 when I saw a big fireball in the sky. Thought at the time it was a meteor, then got that confirmed the next day with this story.
