A meteor or shooting star was spotted by several skygazers on Sunday night (May 26). The American Meteor Society has received more than 50 reports of the Memorial Day fireball. The meteor was spotted in NY, PA, NJ and VA.
The incredible meteor strike in Russia's Ural Mountains might make you wonder, has anything like this ever happened before? We know that in prehistory we have evidence of large objects striking the earth. Since 1900, the largest and best known meteor strike is the 1908 Tanguska Event.
