Memorial Day Meteors

Party goers on the East Coast were graced with two brillant fireballs last night.

The first bolide (event #1143) entered the atmosphere over north central PA around 9:05 PM Eastern time and was traveling from the east-south-east to the west-north-west.

The American Meteor Society also received 18 additional reports for a fireball on the East Coast approximately 3 hours later at 12:05 AM (event #1144).
