MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A large meteor streaked across the Midwestern sky momentarily turning night into day, rattling houses and causing trees and the ground to shake, authorities said Thursday. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Witnesses say the meteor lit up the sky Wednesday about 10:10 p.m. National Weather Service offices across the Midwest say it was visible from southwestern Wisconsin and northern Iowa to central Missouri.

It’s just a weather balloon ignited by swamp-gas.

Nothing to see here.

More earthquakes, more volcanic activity, and more meteorites falling to Earth. What’s up with that?

I got a big weekend planned. Fishing, golf, the works. If we are all doomed, I hope it happens late Sunday afternoon at the earliest.

Filmed accidentally by a police dashboard camera in Iowa, the April 14 meteor ignites in the sky.
