Fireball Streaks Across the Sky in Alabama
Skygazers in Alabama were stunned by a fireball meteor that streaked across the sky.
The meteor moved southwest across the sky at a velocity of 76,000 miles per hour. Marshall Space Flight Center official Bill Cooke has confirmed that it was a baseball-sized fragment of a comet.
A meteor is classified as a fireball when it is brighter than the planet Venus, which Cooke said, “The fireball seen [on] Monday night was 15 times brighter than Venus.”
The phenomenon was only visible for 3 seconds, as the meteor disintegrated in Earth’s atmosphere over the town of Woodstock, Ala. The video below shows a montage of the lone fireball as it shot across the sky.
