(FOX NEWS) – A mysterious fireball that lit up the skies over Northern Florida on Saturday night turned out to be a meteor that was picked up on weather radar, according to officials.
The falling space rock was reported around 11:52 p.m. over Taylor County, the National Weather Service’s Tallahassee office said on Twitter.
The flash from the meteor was so bright it was picked up on weather satellites that are typically used to track thunderstorms and lightning.
The NWS posted a photo where the fireball was picked up by the GOES Lightning Mapper.
Another weather service office in Charleston, S.C., also shared the light that was detected from the fireball as it streaked across the sky.
