The sky turned green in the Southeast of the United States on Saturday night when a bright fireball burned in the night sky.
According to reports, more than 200 people from Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina found that the fireball appeared in the night sky, according to the American Meteor Society event (AMS) page.

According to the AMS report, the meteor was burned as it entered the Earth's atmosphere just east of Tallahassee, Florida.
The glow of the on-going meteorite was so bright that it created shadows for a few seconds before the light was scattered.
It is unknown whether the meteorite came to the ground or if it burned completely in the atmosphere.

Events like this are not particularly rare, but they are significantly brighter than the standard meteorite during a meteorite rainfall.
At the beginning of March 29, 2019, more than 300 people saw a fireball that stretched in the east of Tennessee. The brightness was seen by people from all over the region.
On February 1, 2019, a meteorite exploded on the west of Cuba with some fragments that reached the ground. No injuries were reported, but the explosion felt as far south as Florida.
