Tracy Moore directed us to the Lunar Meteorite Hunters blog. It reports sightings of a meteor from Texas and Oklahoma around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Within an hour, the site had reports of a meteor from locations across the United States.
You can go to the blog to see the picture and a brief video of a meteor taken around the time of the local reports. Because of the increased interest, it may take a while for that site to load on your web browser.
