Video shows a giant green fireball disintegrating over Missouri


It was one of the brightest celestial objects observed so far in 2024. An eyewitness described it as “gigantic”. It was a giant green fireball that disintegrated over Missouri and video captured the moment it happened.

The American Meteor Society website documents this bright fireball that exploded over several states this week, including Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and even as far away as Tennessee. Kathy Starr shared a video of what this bright green fireball looked like above her home.

This was when the fireballs entered our atmosphere. One report came from the Kansas City, Missouri area.

A user named 786veronika on YouTube said: “In Lakeland I saw it around 4:30am…it was huge, the biggest I’ve ever seen“.

It was a busy week in the skies over Missouri and Illinois, as the next night another meteor was spotted over Chicago, Illinois and several other states as well, according to reports from the American Meteor Society.

There are no major meteor showers happening at this time, but the southern Delta Aquariids are expected to begin in mid-July. The alpha Capricorns should also start dating around July 7th.
