Fireball Cuts Through the Sky Over Michigan as Meteor Falls

FCC chairman: Hawaii lacked 'reasonable safeguards' in false alarm incident

"Meteors may not be a risk that people in MI generally think about", said Pete Kuhnmuench, executive director of the Insurance Alliance.

It caused a 2.0 magnitude tremor which could be felt about 4 miles away from Saint Clair Shores in Eastern Michigan, the United States Geological Survey said on its website.

The American Meteor Society took numerous reports of sightings and derived a path of the meteor.

Bill Cooke, Lead of the NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, told the Washington Post that the event was definitely a MI meteor. Fred Levine said through an email that while he was sitting in his living room in Commerce Township, he saw a bright flashing light, most probably lightning, outside his west-facing front door, at about 8:19 p.m.

Meteors are also known as shooting stars and occur when an asteroid, comet or other space object plunges into Earth's atmosphere and burns up.

Though nothing is concrete about the details of the device as of now, it's expected to be a low-end device priced around ₹2,000. Android Go is a program similar to Android One that also aims to improve the budget smartphones ecosystem.

So how bright was the meteor?

Most of this debris is made up of very tiny grains, which are often missed, even though they can produce meteor streaks across the sky.

NASA defines a meteor as "a space rock that becomes so hot it glows when it passes into Earth's atmosphere", which definitely fits the bill with the videos people uploaded to social media. We have chosen a few of the better videos out there, and you can see them all embedded in the post below. As a result, some pieces of the meteor may have reached the ground after it broke up. Tuesday night's meteor was much slower, perhaps around 28,000 miles per hour.

Analyzed data now shows where the meteor could have hit ground in MI. The noise reported along with the loud boom is also indicative of a bolide, Narlock says.

That means a one pound iron meteorite could be worth more than $2,000 while a one pound stone meteorite could get you $9,000.
