Second meteor sighted in Indiana and Ohio

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Another possible meteor has been sighted by multiple people in Indiana and Ohio.

This video was taken near Pine Valley by a security camera at around 11:48 p.m. Wednesday.

An Indiana Police Department confirmed the sighting in a tweet saying:

Earlier this week, a similar event was captured on video in Michigan.

Scientists in Detroit confirmed nothing reached the ground in that incident, but the sonic boom from the rock entering the atmosphere registered as a 2.0 on the Richter scale.

A NASA account tweeted data from the GOES16 satellite that may have also caught the meteor entering earth’s atmosphere.

Members of the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society said the two meteors may be coming from the same source, which could explain why the two happened so close together.
