If you happen to have been looking at the sky over Missouri in the northern part of the state Tuesday night, you might have caught glimpse of a brilliant sky sight as a huge meteor exploded as shown by a camera in Missouri.
Skies over Missouri are rarely boring. In the spring, it's rowdy thunderstorms. In mid-November, there's something special happening involving the remnants of an ancient comet which will be visible if you look close enough.
If you were looking up at the sky for some reason late Thursday night in Missouri, you got quite a surprise. An enormous fireball suddenly zoomed across the sky and exploded on the horizon and a backyard camera captured it as it happened.
Saturday night, August 12, 2023 is expected to be one of the best nights for viewing meteors over Missouri in years. The sky show has already begun as a new video share shows brilliant Perseid meteors zooming across the sky as viewed from Missouri.

It's not uncommon to see meteors in Missouri obviously. However, there are new reports from multiple witnesses who say they saw something that appeared like a shooting star, but didn't behave like one in the skies over Missouri.
