Again: ‘Green Fireball’ Lights Up The Night Sky Across Southern California, Sparks Dozens Of Meteor Reports



By Samantha Tata and Olsen Ebright, NBC Los Angeles – “An authentic photo surfaced Friday afternoon capturing the bright light seen by dozens of Southern California sky watchers.

About 50 people contacted the American Meteor Society on Thursday with reports of a ‘green fireball’ lighting up the sky. Sightings were reported in Ventura, Anaheim, Van Nuys, Los Angeles, Paso Robles, San Francisco and Santa Barbara, according to the group’s website.

Photographer Susan Lary of the Southern California Weather Authority captured the so-called fireball and provided the image to NBC News.

Lary’s photograph (pictured, above) was taken with a 1-minute exposure in Lancaster, Calif., facing southwest.

‘I saw a light and looked directly at the meteor as it came down in the ocean off Corona Del Mar. Bits came off, and it was bright white,’ Laguna Hills resident Patric Barry wrote in an email to NBC4.

Barry spotted the object out of his living room window about 10:35 p.m.

The sightings come days after Bay Area residents were treated to a light show of their own when a fireball was seen streaking across the sky.” Read more.
