Fireball Spotted Over Maryland Tuesday May 25: Video

Shortly before 10 PM on Tuesday May 25 2021,  a large fireball streaked across the sky of the Mid Atlantic US. This was centered over Maryland and captured by various cameras. Thanks to Mike Hankey, his All Sky Cam network, and the American Meteor Society for enhancing the documentation of the event.



A video compilation is below…


This was a unique opportunity as many people may have been outside serving the supermoon. But that 30% increase in moonlight also made for competition in the sky. So this must have been really bright to show up. Bolide is the fancy term for a meteor that flares up or explodes while falling through the atmosphere. This is the bright streak we see, and often gets referred to as a fireball.

This was seen around 9:59 PM between southern Virginia and central Pennsylvania.





The prime location was over Maryland….

Triangulation of reports puts this passing just west of Hagerstown.

Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
