Is it a meteor, or…? US social media explodes after huge blast is heard in four states
Residents of four US states – Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee – have anxiously reported a loud blast. Their first suggestion was a meteor, but more frightening versions followed.
Some said, though, that they saw the actual meteor, and in some pictures, one can see a bright flash of light in the sky.
@MarcWeinbergWX any idea what that loud boom and shaking was in the PRP area?— Brandon Able (@BigTicketAbles) November 20, 2015
Other posted to Twitter that their saw “huge burst of light coming down,” and it looked like “100 feet off the highway, not 100 miles.”
Anyone see that bright #fireball at 10:45 pm tonight? It looked like a blue meteor streaking below the Moon.— Dean Regas (@DeanRegas) November 20, 2015
