Mississippi Fireball


Recommended Posts

Did anyone see the fireball over Mississippi on the 12th? People reported hearing booms. I've been wondering whether or not it could have dropped any meteorites...

Here's the link on the AMS site:

 The first two videos on the AMS site are taken from a very great distance. It's difficult to discern much about

the event in either of those. But oddly enough, the third video, though being of extremely poor quality, shows

the primary break-up much better, and I would be inclined to think that it probably did drop some small fragments

that made it to the ground.
