Meteoroid Mississippi NASA
A large meteoroid streaked across the Mississippi sky as well as other several states at 55,000mph. and it’s been confirmed by NASA. Over 30 eyewitnesses in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi reported seeing a bright fireball at 8:03 a.m. CDT and that was then followed by numerous reports of loud booms heard in Claiborne County, Mississippi, along with surrounding counties.

The NOAA’s Geostationary Lightning Mappers (GLM) onboard the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) 16 and 17 detected several bright flashes associated with the fragmentation’s of this exceptionally bright meteor approximately 22,000-miles out in space. The bolide was first spotted 54 miles above the Mississippi River near the Mississippi town of Alcorn. It is estimated to have weighed 90-pounds and moved southwest at a speed of 55,000 miles per hour, disintegrating into pieces as it descended deeper into Earth’s atmosphere. It’s not everyday that you see a bolide, much less one that can be observed across several states.

What struck me as unusual was how few eyewitness reports we had given the skies were so clear. More people heard it than saw it. This is one of the nicer events I have seen in the GLM data,” said Bill Cooke, lead of NASA’s Meteoroid Environments Office at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
