Meteor seen over West Michigan Monday morning

WEST MICHIGAN, (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Newschannel 3 received a half dozen Facebook posts about a possible meteor sighting early Monday morning.

According to the American Meteor Society; they were right!

A check of its website around 4am showed more than 140 reports from 8 states and Canada.

“Drew” from Kalamazoo wrote: “It was pretty huge. Reminded me of the asteroid that fell through the atmosphere in Russia that was all over the internet.”

“Aaron” in Battle Creek wrote: “I was driving on Morgan Road when I saw this. Absolutely beautiful sight. Wish I would have gotten a picture or video.”

The National Weather Service sent out two videos via twitter of the meteor caught on police dash-cam in Illinois and Wisconsin.

The American Meteor Society; using witnesses reports also plotted a first "estimated trajectory."

It says the meteor was traveling from the Southwest to Northeast ending its flight over Lake Michigan somewhere between Sheboygan and Manitowic Wisconsin.
