Fireball Shoots Across the Sky

Many Eastern Iowans and others across the Midwest saw something streak across the sky Sunday night that made them take a second look.

It was taken just after 8:30 p.m. during a softball banquet in Riceville. In the video you can see the bright white light of a meteor. The meteor was so bright it could been seen even during the daytime, which actually classifies it as a fireball. This means the meteor was brighter than the planet Venus.  

One Dubuque resident, Samantha Stevens had her eyes in the sky at the time and described to us what she saw. "I saw a big flash, and it was like a big green streak, and then another flash and then it like broke off into a million little pieces," said Stevens.
