Seeing Stars

Meteor Reported Over Midwest

Is it the end of the world as we know it? Just two days after a meteor was reported over Chicago and across the Midwest, another was sighted. Around 11:30 p.m. Friday night, a streaking light appeared in the sky, reported to news stations by residents of Ohio, Indiana and other states across the region, as well as by people farther east and even in parts of Canada. Videos and tweets exploded from people seeing what is reportedly a second meteor. And if something that cool sounds like wishful thinking, take it up with the American Meteor Society: it's currently investigating over 300 reports.
