The state’s Civil Protection office said this morning it is working with firefighters in several areas of the state to determine whether it was indeed a meteorite that landed.The Puebla Astronomical Society weighed in on Twitter by observing that the loud explosion heard by people in Mexico City, Puebla and Tlaxcala didn’t necessarily mean it was a meteorite that had landed on Earth.The society said it was more likely a meteor that exploded in the atmosphere.  http://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/ball-of-fire-explosion-witnessed-in-3-states/#sthash.M2F5fGq0.dpuf
