Hundreds in Illinois & Missouri See Fireball Light Up Summer Sky
A fireball seen in nine states including Missouri and Illinois was seen by at least 185 people.
Witnesses saw the fireball over on Father's Day weekend and were seen in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. One video was from a car dashboard that had a very clear view of the fireball falling from the sky.
Seems fireballs are becoming popular since there are more cameras around to record them falling. Of course, fireballs have been seen many many times in years past, but they wat technology has become more popular we are getting more videos.
A fireball is just another term for a very bright meteor and is special due to the way it explodes in the sky to create the flash we all can see. No one from Quincy reported seeing the fireball, the closest to the Tri-States was Springfield.
