Earth-grazing fireball over Wisconsin and Michigan caught on Video on February 1st

- 1 Comment - In: ,

More than 200 witnesses have reported a large Earth-grazing fireball over Wisconsin and Michigan on February 1th around 6:25pm ET (February 2nd 2016 ~ 00:25 Universal Time). The fireball was seen primarily from Wisconsin and Michigan but witnesses from Ilinois, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Ontario (Canada) also reported seeing the fireball.

The fireball appears to be an Earth-grazer: a very bright meteor that enters Earth’s atmosphere and leaves again.
