Listeners to 910 KINA “Coffee Talk” called in just before 7am to report seeing a brilliant bright light in the sky around 6:40am.
Several reports came popped up on the web site lunarmetoritehunters.blogspot.com about a meteor that was seen in Oklahoma City, Kansas City, Topeka, and near Junction City.
Some of the reports were:
- “It was extremely bright and when it got real close, it exploded into several big sparks and then faded out. It looked like a mag light was falling from the sky and then blew up into big orange sparks. “
- “white with gold sparkles on the tail bright white -very large gold sparkles on it’s tail it was pretty cool, “
- “Traveling West Gold, green Like a flare Yes It was falling in the South part of the sky…it seemed to literally fall to the ground.”
All the reports indicated that the meteorite was seen right around 6:40am central time.
