A meteor that streaked across Windsor and Southeast Michigan, Tuesday evening was seen from from parts of Ontario, Michigan, and Ohio.

The American Meteor Society lists more than 30 reports of the fireball that lit up the northwest sky around 7:40pm local time on Tuesday, November 14th, 2023.

Video captured by windsoriteDOTca’s Weather Cam showed the blue/green meteor with a large tail streaking across Downtown Windsor/Detroit at 7:40pm. The video, captured from a camera facing North in Downtown Windsor, shows the bright meteor moving in a northwesterly direction before it disappeared.

“Shooting stars, or meteors, are bits of interplanetary material falling through Earth’s atmosphere and heated to incandescence by friction,” according to NASA. “These objects are called meteoroids as they are hurtling through space, becoming meteors for the few seconds they streak across the sky and create glowing trails.”
