I haven't seen any reports of this posted here on ATS so I thought this was worth posting, also since there were reports of booms, indicating that there may be meteorites on the ground, and the fireball was seen over a wide area

The American Meteor Society has received 35 reports of a bright fireball over
much of the lower Midwestern states including Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas,
Missouri, and Kansas . This event occurred at 10:11pm CDT Tuesday evening June

If you have any questions regarding meteors or fireballs see if there is an answer in
