Wisconsin's on a cosmic roll! Yesterday morning (Monday) just after 4 a.m. another bright-as-the-full-moon meteor blazed across the sky in the eastern part of the state. People from Janesville to Milkwaukee to Oshkosh saw the meteor when they were up early walking their dogs and on the way to work. Unlike the April 14 fireball, this one apparently wasn't picked up on Doppler weather radar so it's unknown if it produced any meteorites. The closest report to Duluth I've come across is one received by our National Weather Service office from a caller in Iron County in northeastern Wisconsin who saw a bright flash then "something glowing in the woods." There's one report of a "boom" heard in Oshkosk after the flash.
The American Meteor Society's Fireball Network shows no reports yet but if you saw this meteor, please go to this link and share your observation with the world. For more information, check out this TV report as well as this one. Hopefully I'll have more information on the meteor soon.
