Meteor Explodes Over Michigan
Just after 8 PM EST, many people in Michigan saw a bright flash in the sky that some first mistook for lightning. It was not a storm - it was a meteor that exploded several miles above SE Michigan. Some also heard - and felt - the explosion. The blast was recorded by a seismometer at the University of Michigan as a 2.0 magnitude earthquake. After the meteor's trajectory was analyzed,a likely location for fragments was determined to be in Livingston county. The first meteorites were found Thursday morning. From what I have been able to find by researching the Internet, the last time meteorites have fallen in Michigan was in 1965. http://www.michigan.gov/documents/deq/BU05_301713_7.pdf
