CLEVELAND COUNTY, N.C. – There are several reports from Saturday night of a meteor gliding across the Carolina skies.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing a large bolide meteor that split into several pieces.  First Warn Storm Spotter Stuart McDaniel caught it all on his sky camera.

McDaniel lives in Northern Cleveland County.  In his video, the fast moving meteor moved rapidly across the sky growing bigger and bigger then fading away.

McDaniel isn’t the only one who saw the meteor; the American Meteorologist Society received 55 reports about this fireball seen over Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
