Breaking Meteor News...AMS Says 50 Reports Of Seven Seperate Bolide Events Over N America 19Jan 2011...

The American Meteor Society has received 39 reports of seven separate fireball events over North America on January 19th. Two of
these were widely seen events. Both of these events occurred near 21:00 EST. The first occurred  over the northern Midwest and
southern Canada. There is some wide scattered timing of this event and the possibility exists that this may be more than one
fireball. The second occurred over the southeastern states and was seen from Florida north to North Carolina. There is good
agreement for the timing plus it seems to been a bit brighter with a majority of those reporting that the peak brightness exceeded
that of the full moon.
