Fireball Streaks Across Phoenix Sky

Residents of Phoenix, Arizona were treated to approximately four seconds of night-time daylight on Tuesday, as a suspected meteor burst through the Earth’s atmosphere and lit up the area

The city tweeted footage of two fireballs streaking across the night sky, which had been captured by a security camera overlooking a number of public buildings.

In the video, one meteor can be seen burning up in a flash above the clouds while another, smaller meteor extinguishes parallel to it.

According to the American Meteor Society, there were 77 reports of fireballs over Arizona on Tuesday, with the majority of observers reporting that they saw the largest fireball. Meanwhile, Twitter users were similarly excited by the sight.

Arizona has a long history of being struck by meteors, in June last year, residents of Phoenix reported being woken by the sound of loud banging as a meteor passed overhead.

The state is also home to the Barringer Crater, a meteorite-impact crater north of Phoenix, which was created by a meteorite strike 50,000 years ago. It is now a popular tourist attraction in the state.

    Well, I’ve seen asteroids coming through the atmosphere. They all look different, but some of them look exactly like this.

    Just because it probably is though doesn’t mean much. I’ve seen a UFO myself so I’m not being a dick here.
