Exploding Meteor Seen and Heard Across the Midwest
Between 10 pm and 10:30 pm CST an exploding meteor or bolide was witnessed by thousands across the Midwest. Eyewitnesses in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and as far away as Ohio saw a bright blue green meteor light up the night sky and explode. They could even hear it rumble across the sky which led some 911 callers to think maybe it was a missile attack of some sort. The meteor was seen moving in a Northwest to Southeast direction.
