Videos of the Midwest Fireball (Updated)

Great balls of fire! What was that bright light streaking through the Midwestern skies on the night of Wednesday, April 14? It was a meteor, and it was captured by Milwaukee's WISN Channel 12's weather camera at 9:24 p.m. CST (see it here). On April 16, it is being reported that pieces (meteorites) of the meteor that lit up the sky are being found in SW Wisconsin between Avoca and Platteville (Duluth News Tribune).  UPDATE: Exclusive Interview With Wisconsin Meteor Professor - Land owner finds and donates meteorite to University of Wisconsin-Madison.
