- Brightly Burning Meteor Lights the Sky BLUE as It Streaks Across the Heavens (VIDEOS)
Early risers in Arizona were treated to some celestial fireworks earlier this week when a suspected meteor lit up the entire sky, and in spectacular fashion, giving a brief, blue hue to the morning.
The American Meteor Society received multiple reports of sightings from across the state around 5:30am local time on Wednesday. Eyewitness footage, from doorbells, dashcams and everything in between, shows this meteor went out with a bang!
But the sightings weren’t restricted to Arizona, however. “This does appear to be a bright meteor as observations are spread out from southern California, southern Utah, and Arizona,” Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society said.
