Early this morning, a majestic meteor flashed brightly across the Pennsylvania and Ohio sky with over 700 sightings reported from 15 states. From KDKA-TV:

[Cleveland State University astronomer Jay] Reynolds says that a trajectory of the meteor put together by The American Meteor Society estimates that the path was just west of the Pennsylvania and Ohio border[…]

Reynolds says there are indications that this meteor ‘fell’ over the area south of Youngstown, [Ohio,] but a ‘fall’ likely means that it broke up into several smaller pieces.

Reynolds said it is unlikely that there will be any discovery of the pieces of this meteor, saying that there have only been 13 discoveries of fallen objects in Ohio’s entire history.
