A meteor streaking across the Ohio skies put on quite a show for a few brief seconds Thursday evening. Reports began coming in just after 10 p.m. on Thursday of a bright object streaking across the sky at about 9:55 p.m.
“It was an incredible sight. It came from the south, streaked over head quickly and then within a second disappeared over Lake Erie,” Kathy from Willoughby Hills, Ohio said. She described the sight as a bright white ball with a long, green tail.
Steven from Wooster, Ohio saw it too. He said he also saw “2 or 3 pieces that came off bottom and were traveling at a slower velocity.”
The shooting star was observed across portions of Ohio, Southern Ontario, Western Pennsylvania, Ohio & West Virginia.
Steven in Toronto, comments, “Never seen anything like it before. There was a main body of white streaking across the sky, (and) smaller objects near it.”
“Just saw a glow over the lake, green blue in colour. (It) looked like a firework at first but we realized it wasn’t.” said K.J. from Sarnia, Ontario.
Margaret from Perry, Ohio exclaims, “I have seen a few fireballs in my life. Never one that was green. So cool. looked like green sparks coming off initial fireball. Fireball faded with no flash. Glowing green and white that faded to white.”
