trajectoriesThe American Meteor Society is reporting that four large fireballs were spotted in separate areas of the United States on Tuesday. Sept. 23.

The locations include areas over Florida/Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Three of the four events occurred within 1.5 hours of each other.

“It is rare that multiple significant fireball events occur and are reported to the AMS in the same evening. After analysis of the time, proximity of witnesses and pointing data gathered, it was determined that each event was unique,” the AMS wrote on its website.

The AMS is asking others who may have seen the fireballs to report the incident to them.
