But back to the fireball: It was confirmed by the National Weather Service's Tallahassee office as a meteor and recorded at around 11:52pm over Taylor County in Northern Florida on Saturday. The insanely bright light could also be seen in Georgia and South Carolina. Fox News reports that it was "so bright it was picked up on weather satellites that are typically used to track thunderstorms and lightning."
Well, it was a rock. If you need a refresher on the difference between a meteor, meteorite, and meteoroid, the chorus of this Joana Newsome song breaks it all down in rhyme. Alternatively, you could Facebook message your high school science teacher.
