Was that a fireball, meteor or something else?

There’s lot of buzz around Detroit about a cryptic fireball flying through the sky around the Detroit area early Wednesday morning (Oct. 20). According to Local 4, this fireball-type object has been spotted in Belleville, Clinton Township, Pontiac, Fraser, Freeland, Holly, Howell, Romulus, Warren, White Lake and beyond. It happened around 12:45 a.m.

Have you seen this fireball? I personally have not!

Here’s some video that local resident Mike Kruse took of the fireball in Trenton.
