State News


A meteor hit southeastern Michigan at approximately 8:08 p.m. Tuesday evening. The asteroid was about 1 to 2 yards in diameter and was moving at a speed of 28,000 mph. It began melting away at extremely high temperatures which produced a bright light and confusion among locals. The meteor caused a 2.0 magnitude earthquake, and people reported feelings of the ground shaking during its arrival. It broke about 20 miles above Earth, which caused a shower of small space rocks that weighed 1 to 2 ounces. NASA is currently investigating the meteor’s origin.
