Meteor Sighted In Wisconsin Skies

Portions of the Midwest were treated to a rare sight in the early morning hours on Thursday as a meteor streaked across the skies.

Sightings of the fireball came in from across the Fox Valley and southeast Wisconsin, though it was spotted from as far away as Iowa and Missouri.

Experts at UW-Madison say the fiery object was likely from the asteroid belt and not a piece of space debris. Astronomers will be piecing together the object’s origin point over the next few days using eyewitness reports.
