CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Dozens of people in the Carolinas reported fire in the sky Tuesday night, including First Warn chief meteorologist Brad Panovich.
"So this is the second fireball meteor I have caught on my Nest cam. Check it out on the right side. This was looking northeast at around 9 p.m.," Panovich wrote on Facebook.
As of 11 p.m., more than 30 skywatchers in the Carolinas reported similar sightings to the American Meteor Society.
"Someone posted their Nest cam image of it, so I went back and checked at the exact same time on my roof camera, and I caught it as well," Panovich said.
In the video, Panovich explained the light on the left side of the screen was a plane. But the meteor would soon come into view on the right side.
"I'm going to try to zoom in and edit this and maybe post some other updates," Panovich added. "But I wanted to show everybody I got it!"
