Strange Fire Balls seen in ND skies

If you were looking up in the sky tonight, you couldn’t miss them. Three large balls of fire.

So what were they?

According to a Bismarck man, they were mostly likely three parts of the same meteor.

Here’s what one of them looked like… a lot like a comet.

But William Pearce, who holds his PHD in Astronomy and teaches at Bismarck State College says this was probably just one peice of three from the same meteor.

It’s not every day you see meteors falling from the sky.

But Pearce says most of the time, they break up as they’re falling into the atmosphere.

No worries according to Pearce.

Once they are in the atmosphere, they fall very quickly.? –kxmb
