Possible Meteorite Fall in Northeast Ohio

A map showing possible meteorite impact areas.
It isn't very often that Northeast Ohio, my neck of the nation, makes news for astronomical reasons but, today, it has. Why? Based on observations with its all-sky camera network, NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office has issued an alert to Northeast Ohio residents, specifically those on the Ohio-Pennsylvania line near the Warren area, to be on the lookout for meteorites after a bright fireball was captured on camera coming in over Lake Erie. For a complete report on this exciting event, go here.

Humble requests:

If you found this informative (or at least entertaining), help me pay my bills and check out my Examiner pages for space news, cleveland photography, national photography, and astronomy for more great stuff.

If you think this was cool, why not tell a friend?
