  • Fire in the sky over Mid-Michigan

The American Meteor Society said it received hundreds of reports of the startling sight Tuesday from MI, surrounding USA states and Ontario, Canada, the AP reported. He said he was driving when "it just blew up into a bunch of sparks".

"I thought for sure I was either seeing the alien invasion or the apocalypse. It was kind of odd how orange the sky was behind me and this blaze of flame out of nowhere".

Bystander videos captured the moment a white light appeared to explode in the heavens.

The Echo ($179) is the standard unit, while the Dot ($89) has all the smarts but no speaker and is created to be connected to one. Westpac also has a financial markets news product allowing you to ask Alexa for the headlines.

Lighting up the skies in the southeast portion of the state, the meteor also caused a magnitude 2.0 natural disaster about 40 miles from Detroit.

In this case, however, the US Geologic Survey confirmed that this bright light over MI was a rather large meteor that managed to break through the Earth's atmosphere. It exploded in the air with the power of 100 tons of TNT, said Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office.

If you happen to find a piece of the meteorite in metro Detroit, you could be in for a real prize, with some going for up to $1 million a pound. If any fragments remain and fall to Earth they are called meteorites.

Norton returning to Seattle as defensive coordinator
He was subsequently hired by the 49ers last week as an assistant head coach before taking the job with Seattle. Mike Sullivan, the Giants' former offensive coordinator, is now the quarterbacks coach for the Denver Broncos.

Did you get video of the meteor? "Very rare for MI because it's only a small area".

United States Geologic Survey natural disaster map shows the M2.0 "quake" set off by this bolide. Usually, during annual meteor showers, stargazers only see smaller dust particles burning up in the upper atmosphere. Reports have come in from across the Great Lakes region, but so far, there no one can say where the possible meteor landed.

Since most meteorites have some iron in them, they are magnetic.

The crew, comprised of 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis , died due to the blast and the release of toxic gas, he said . The Chinese say the ship left a 10-square-kilometre (3.8-square-mile) area contaminated with oil.

Any would-be meteorite hunters need to know that the meteorites now belong to the owners of the property on which they fell, Cooke said.
