An amazing mica was seen in the northwest of the United States, rising through the sky as it did. The Micah collided with the Earth’s atmosphere on October 26, leaving dozens of people in Canada and the United States watching. Witnesses were shocked, many claiming it was the largest and brightest fireball they had ever seen.
The pictures we see show a bright line of light in the night sky as a small space rock falls towards our planet.
Americans and Canadians went to the International Meteorological Organization (IMO) to tell what they saw.
Claire said: “It was great for me. I’ve seen a lot of shooting stars in my life. It was big / close.”
Ray told the IMO: “It was really cool. Looked like the brightest / tallest ‘shooting star’ I’ve ever seen.”
Sue recounted her experience: “I was heading north across the Astoria-Megler Bridge when I saw this.
“At first my mind went to the helicopter… but it was going very fast and to a high corner.
“The light blue was flatter and thinner than the round, not really understandable tail, although it could be a little bit.
“I just said, ‘Wow! What was that !?’ My cat. “

The IMO said: “Fireballs are different in that they look brighter than usual.
The speed at which they strike the Earth’s atmosphere has the potential to produce a bright flash in fragments larger than a millimeter as they pass through the sky above.
“These glowing meteors are what we call fireballs and they often scare and intimidate people who see them.”
Probably the most famous fire in modern history came when Chelyabinsk was attacked by a meter in 2013.
The blast, caused by a 20-meter meteor, was so powerful that it shattered windows across the city and injured more than 1,000 people.
