We see meteors all the time flash across the sky in Missouri and Illinois, but how many reach the ground? More than you think as I can document at least 24 meteorites that have been found in Missouri alone.
I love science. It's unfortunate that I don't understand it better. This is a great example. This object was just spotted in the skies over Missouri. If I didn't know better, I would think it's a meteor or a UFO and I'd be wrong both times.
It's been an active year in our skies when it comes to meteors, fireballs and such. That includes an event Wednesday evening when videos captured a fireball reportedly seen by hundreds over Missouri and Illinois.
