Sweet Meteor of Death
Missing the west and south sides by a fraction (astronomically speaking):
- LISLE, Ill. - If you were awake early Monday morning, you might have noticed a bright green fireball streaking across the Chicago area.
It happened at about 1:30 a.m.
The American Meteor Society is calling it a bolide, which is is one of the largest meteors that can occur, measuring somewhere between 1 meter and 100 meters. Experts believe this meteor most likely came from an asteroid.
That would be one way to put a damper on Chicago violence. Who would the City bill the overtime to though?
