Security Camera Captures Fireball Streaking Through Indiana Sky

1 年前

An Indiana resident’s security camera recorded a fireball streaking over the Midwest early on June 29.

This footage was captured by Bryan Bunton’s outdoor camera and shows a fireball whizzing through the night sky in Greenwood, Indiana, he said.

The American Meteor Society (AMS) confirmed reports of a large, extremely bright meteor over Indiana on June 29 at 2:20 am.

Local news stations reported that the fireball was seen from Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Ohio.

The AMS estimates “roughly 50,000 fireballs enter the earth’s atmosphere every year, but most of them go unseen because they appear during daylight or over unpopulated areas like the ocean.” Credit: Bryan Bunton via Storyful
