  1. Rare Daylight Meteor Seen in California


    Just after the peak of an annual meteor shower, a rare daytime meteor was seen and heard streaking over northern Nevada and parts of California on Sunday. Meteorologist Mike Smith from the National Weather Service office in Sacramento, California said that the meteor probably would have exploded as it entered the atmosphere. Observers in the Reno-Sparks area of Nevada saw a fireball at about 8 a.m. local time, accompanied or followed by a thunderous clap that experts said could have been a sonic boom from the meteor or the sound of it breaking up high over the Earth. The meteor was reported seen in California from Sacramento to Orange County, hundreds of miles to the south. But the fireball went unnoticed in much of the Los Angeles area and other parts of Southern California because of cloudy skies. While meteors visible at night typically range in size from a pebble to a grain of sand, a meteor large enough to be seen during daylight hours would presumably be as big as a baseball or softball. Sunday’s unusual daytime shooting star came just after the pre-dawn peak of the Lyrid meteor shower, an annual display that occurs when the Earth passes through remnants of space debris left by a comet that last approached the planet in 1861 on its 400-year orbit of the sun.
