Four Fireballs at Four in Last 24 Hours: American Meteor Society

In the last 24 hours the AMS has received confirmed reports about 4 unique fireball events all occurring near 4:00 AM UTC time.

The most recent event occurred in Arkansas and Missouri on May 19th near 3:37 UTC.

At the same time 3:37 UTC 4 witnesses reported a fireball in Arizona.

The distance between these two locations would inhibit witnesses from observing the same fireball from both locations.

On May 18th two large fireball meteors were also spotted within an hour of each other, one over the central east coast and another in Colorado.

I witnessed the brightest fireball I've ever seen on 15-May-2013, from the FL panhandle. - c
