NASA: Meteor confirmed, fragments possible south of Atlanta


LOCUST GROVE, Ga. -- NASA has identified a fiery object seen flying across Georgia near Henry County, Thursday night.

Officials with the space agency said that around 6:30 p.m. they received several reports of a bright fireball shooting across the sky.

Authorities in the scientific community have since identified the object as a piece of an asteroid that likely weighed at least 150 pounds as it streaked 50 miles above McDonough, Ga.

It entered the atmosphere at approximately 29,000 mph.

That’s when the fireball stopped producing light by ablation – or brightly burning up.

Now the hunt is on by amateur meteorite hunters in the area of Locust Grove and counties adjacent to Henry County where NASA believes potential chucks may have made landfall.
