A meteor was captured on film and witnessed by dozens of people streaking through the Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana skies on Wednesday.
If you have been following reports from the media then you know that we are entering an era in which world governments and planetary defense agencies are on high alert as thousands of uncatalogued Near-Earth objects whizz by our plane yearly and most without any warning.
The brillant firball streaked and flashed for a duration of about 1 second.

The current meteor shower is called Southern Taurids, which is active now through Nov. 20, according to AMS.
The AMS said several thousand meteors of fireball magnitude occur in the Earth’s atmosphere each day. The vast majority occur over oceans and uninhabited areas. When these occur at night, they stand little chance of being seen due to the lower number of persons out to notice them.
If you witnessed this event and/or have photos and video, you can submit an official fireball report here.
