Fireball and flash in the sky alarms Utahns

This seems to be happening a lot more. I’m sure its a combination of more cameras to record these events along with an increased interest in the sky above period.

(KSL.com) – SALT LAKE CITY — People all over the state were caught off guard when a ball of fire suddenly lit up the night sky. Just after midnight, the phones lit up at KSL as people across the state called to tell us what they saw and ask what it was.

The bolide meteor was likely a straggler from Tuesday’s Leonid meteor shower. The Earth is passing the Leonids right now, which is one of the most spectacular meteor shower shows that can be seen every year.
