Emerald meteor lights up the Southern USA skies on Tuesday night

A meteor came crashing into the planet over the Southern Plains late Tuesday night. Witnesses described the color as greenish-blue and like lightning.
The flashing is quite common with a large meteor burning through the planet’s atmosphere.

 

The meteor was seen from Florida through to Oklahoma and zipped across the sky from southeast to northwest.

A photo sent in by a viewer to StuffSneak, Bryan Bergon of Southeast Oklahoma, described the event as a once in a lifetime for him.

“I was out catching Orion when it popped into view on the horizon”, he said. “It looked like the meteor color from the movie ‘Meteor Man’. It came from the southeast and went northwest”.

    This photograph is at least 2 years old, and not the 1/11/11 meteorite. The same photo is labeled as “Leonid Fireball” at the website

    The following website posted the same photo, then determined it was false:

    (they have replaced it with a different photo, which is also probably false)
