If you were up really early in the morning a few days ago, you likely witnessed one of the brightest fireballs in recent memory. Thanks to new security camera video, you can see it even if you weren't up showing a massive meteor that seemed to turn darkness into day.
There are several times per year during known meteor showers when it's not unusual to see something like this. However, this huge meteor was completely unexpected as it exploded over Missouri as captured on video by a photographer.
We see meteors all the time flash across the sky in Missouri and Illinois, but how many reach the ground? More than you think as I can document at least 24 meteorites that have been found in Missouri alone.
