A very bright meteor streaked across the skies of Atlanta Sunday night, NASA scientists revealed Monday.
NASA said that the meteor was “too bright for the all-sky camera in Cartersville to accurately determine the center of light.”
The Meteoroid Environment Office reported the meteor’s initial speed was around 23.6 km per second (52,800 mph).
The all-sky camera in Cartersville, Ga., operated by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., captured a video and photos of the spectacular meteor.
