‘WOAH!’ Watch Fireball Explode, Light Up Sky Over Florida

According to the American Meteor Society, which received at least 230 reports about a fireball seen in the sky, the event was technically a “bolide” blowing up in the night sky as it passed through the dense layers of the Earth’s atmosphere.

A luminous object burst into the clear starry sky over the southeastern coast of Florida from Jacksonville to Miami at great speed, only to soon explode and illuminate the skies of the Sunshine State with its brightest flash.

According to some eyewitnesses’ accounts, people could hear a sonic boom sound quite loud and clear. And many of them rushed to immediately share their successful shots on social media.
