This fireball explosion occurred on October 2 2014 over Murray, Utah.
Luckily, it was caught on tape by the surveillance camera of Family Valdez. So cool!
Did you also see this blazzing fireball disintegrating over Utah at around 4:30am? If not yet, watch the great video of that exploding bright meteor crossing Utah sky:
The fireball explosion was described by Patrick Wiggins, the NASA/JPL Ambassador to Utah as:
“A rock, a meteoroid, if you will, traveling through space, minding its own business. The Earth got in the way, right? And Earth’s gravity kind of went ‘OK, come on down.’ [It] hit the Earth’s atmosphere and, of course, when it did that it got very, very hot and very, very bright. [It] hit, made a great big flash, traveled well across the sky, headed down to the south, and then was breaking up. In other words, a bright meteor had just exploded.”
According to witnesses, no booms were heard. But sometimes disintegrating balls of fire create weird noises.
