If you're a resident of Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Arkansas, or Oklahoma and happened to be hanging around outside in the early morning hours of June 19th, you may have been treated to a truly breathtaking skywatching event. A large fireball appeared in the skies and was visible across several states. Scientists have been pulling together reports from across the region and now we have some stunning video of the vent to feast our eyes on.
The American Meteorological Society, which tracks sightings of objects in the skies all across the country, has compiled nearly two dozen reports from this one event. As we can see from the video, if you were outside at the time it would have been very hard to miss.
