Fire Ball!

Last night a fireball lit up parts of the Utah sky– and the phenomenon, which saw the dead of night as bright as day, was captured on CCTV. One video filmed by security cameras at the University of Utah's Milford observatory shows a blinding flash of light around 12:07 am yesterday, followed by clear images of the object streaking away. "It looks like a shooting star on steroids," said Seth Jarvis, director of the Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City. “Although it's too early to say definitively how large the object was and how fast it was going, Jarvis estimated that it was about the size of an oven and was traveling at about 80,000 mph. It broke through the Earth's atmosphere and was probably around 100 miles above the ground when it became visible, he said. It almost certainly broke up before it reached the ground, he said.”
