I heard what sounded like thunder (but short) and then a big gust of wind. There was no wind otherwise. Very interesting to find out it was a meteor.

I live in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. At about 11:45 pm last night, I saw this fireball. The sky lit up like it was daylight. I was in my truck sitting in my driveway. I literally thought someone was shining a spotlight in the drivers window. Then I looked over my shoulder and saw it. it was huge!

I made a youtube video discussing what happened, and one of my subs told me about this blog. Very good and interesting blog. Thank You,

Phil from West Virginia
