Several people reported seeing a meteor lighting up the morning sky Wednesday across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The American Meteor Society confirmed the sighting and reported that the bright meteor was seen in other parts of the U.S. as well and may have spanned up to Canada. The annual Taurid meteor shower occurs when Earth passes through a wide stream of debris left over from Comet Encke. This dust strikes Earth’s upper atmosphere around 65,000 mph burns up, creating faint streaks of light or meteors. Read more for dash cam footage of the meteor and additional information.
Wondering if you’ll be able to catch one of these in the night sky? Well, the South Taurids peak on Oct. 10 while the North Taurids peak on Nov. 12.
