MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A bright light in the early morning sky Wednesday was caught by a WREG camera.
NASA, as well as the American Meteor Society, received hundreds of reports of a fireball shortly before 7 a.m.
The reports came from all over the Mid-South.
"It appears to have fragmented 41 miles above Louisville, Mississippi," NASA said. "Estimates of the brightness indicate that the object weighed about 5 pounds and was roughly 5 inches in diameter."
