Large Fireball Meteor with Sonics Over Ohio

By Mike Hankey, in Fireball Logs, Fireball Sightings

Over 200 witnesses reported a large fireball over Ohio last night around 11:05 PM local central time (3:05 UT). The fireball was seen from primarily Ohio and Indiana, but witnesses from West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and North Carolina also reported seeing the fireball.

With the large Asteroid (285263) 1998 QE2 and its moon coming in close contact with earths atmosphere today this seems coincidental. Will there be any more sightings or impacts in the near future? or is this an isolated incident. One thing is for certain, time will reveal all answers.

After the recent impact in Russia on the same day as the asteroid flyby, I suppose I am on edge. Especially after a sighting of this magnitude. It seems like a very wide swath of people that sighted this.

Quotes from people who sighted / heard this event

"it was so bright it light shined thru heavy cloud..."

"Greenish color. Looked like large firework with trail of glowing pieces falling off."

"At first I Thought it was a jet exploding as it went down...cannot believe I have not heard of it on the news!!!"

Earth did pass through the orbital plane of comet PANSTARRS today.....so i would think its a remnant from the comets tail. Nothing to worry about, but very cool

Tell that to the people in Russia who got hit after a asteroid passed us last time. These bigger objects are always accompanied by other objects and this is the first and hopefully the last one from this asteroid.

Large fireball triggers 'earthquake like' shaking ovar Ohio

Published on May 31, 2013


An earthquake-like shaking felt by some Ohioans on Thursday night is being attributed to a large fireball.

"The American Meteor Society's website says more than 50 people reported seeing the fireball just after 11 p.m. Thursday. It "was seen primarily from Ohio and Indiana," according to the AMS, but reports also came from West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and North Carolina.

The website says the fireball included sonics.

There have been no official reports of damage and it is unknown where the fireball may have landed.

According to the AMS, "fireball" is another term for a very bright meteor, "generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the planet Venus as seen in the morning or evening sky."

Saw something interesting in central Illinois last night. Perhaps just a satellite. Does anyone know how to find out where certain satellites are at certain times? 2:14 AM Central time South Eastern skyline?

The Chelyabinsk meteor had absolutely Zero connection with the Asteroid 2012 DA14. It is all about trajectory, not taking a coincidence and trying to make a fact out of it because you think that is what must have happened.

Just a slight correction here:

1998 QE2 did not come into contact with Earth's atmosphere. The closest it got was around 3.6 million miles, and our atmosphere does not go out that far (else the moon would be in it).

Thank you for the correction.

Hide yo children! Hide yo wife! The meteors are coming with terror and strife!

Seriously though, I hope we get pummeled by meteors in my lifetime just so I can laugh like a maniacal villain while watching Earth finally get her freedom back from us retched little parasites. ^_^

I live in Indiana and missed out.............dammit...I always do. It was pouring down rain here Thursday and Friday anyway. I'm still looking forward to when ISON comes into view later this year. As far as all the meteors, meteorites, fireballs, and what ever else I forgot, this year is gonna be a historical one for sure!!!

I live outside of Columbus, Oh and missed this also :// I live in the "country" and in the perfect place for sky watching. Beautiful clear skies. I see "shooting stars" almost nightly. And have witnessed several green fireballs. I unfortunately have never seen a ufo in our skies...

We live just northeast of Cincinnati, Ohio.
At about dusk (8:30-9:00 pm.?) on the 30th or the 31st.), my wife and I were sitting on our deck relaxing...and my wife turned to me and said "did you see that?".
I saw nothing...but she told me that she just saw a descending streak of light (just to the southwest of our back yard). She said it moved fast and was very low on the horizon. What was odd was that she felt it actually came from high up...and descended towards the ground...just beyond the treeline behind our house on the other side of the wide wooded valley behind our deck.

Neither of us heard any sound at the time.
