Florida Meteor Shower: Flashes Of Light Spotted In Night Sky

Posted: Updated:

A possible meteor shower was spotted in Florida on Sunday night, according to local reports.

According to NBC Miami, the Coast Guard received a host of calls describing bright, fireball-like objects flying through the sky. Experts told NBC Miami that the light show may have been a sporadic meteor shower.

No injuries or damage were reported, according to the Sun Sentinel.

According to WPTV, meteor showers are common. It's less likely that so many people would have spotted it, though.

This is just the latest in a series of mysterious objects flying through the sky. In Russia, a meteor explosion injured nearly 1,000 people last week. A bright streak of light was also reported over Northern California and on Friday an large asteroid narrowly passed by Earth.
