A fiery meteor lit up the sky over Boulder on September 2 2014 at around 10:30PM
Did you see it? Did you hear it?
What did light up Boulder skies? Was this a meteor? Well many witnesses reported seeing a fireball streak across the sky around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday night.
On American Meteor Society, residents of at least 18 different cities around Colorado, from Fountain, Evergreen, Boulder, Pueblo, Estes Park Littleton, Aurora to Arvada, say they saw the meteor:
This space rock had probably the size of a flying baseball to volleyball! Amazing as their typical size is that of a grain of sand or a pebble.
Some people saw some breakup of the actual meteor itself. It split into four distinct pieces. It was flying south to north. The flyby lasted around 10 seconds. The fireball left a long orange-yellow gaseous trail, as it started disintegrate in the atmosphere.
Too bad that this fiery meteor didn’t leave a sonic boom! He was probably still in the upper atmosphere. Send us your picture.
