If you were up really last last night and gazing at the night sky, you might’ve spotted a fireball glide right across.
Last night, the National Weather Service in Tampa Bay received over 189 reports of people saying they say a meteor. The NWS Tampa shared a satellite image showing the exact position of the meteor as it burned in space.
Did you happen to see a meteor this evening? We've gotten a few reports about one that could be seen from #SWFL! Our #GOES-16 Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) appears to have captured the bright meteor as it burned up off the coast #flwx pic.twitter.com/qg9pTRcWQg— NWS Tampa Bay (@NWSTampaBay) April 13, 2021
