There’s never a dull moment in Florida. This truism was proven once again Saturday night when dash cams in the Gainesville area picked up an impressively bright, blue-greenish fireball plunging toward Earth.
A number of other eyewitnesses reported on social media seeing the bright light rushing toward the ground, and 220 reports from Florida and adjacent states were made to the American Meteor Society.
There haven’t been confirmed reports yet of the meteor impacting the ground. Surprisingly, small meteoroids can put off lots of bright light as they completely burn up in our atmosphere.
This latest meteoroid sighting comes after a larger, where some small bits of the space rock survived to make it to the ground.
