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.
