The American Meteor Society reports that there were over 300 reports of a fireball over Missouri Monday at around 8:40pm. The meteor could also be seen from Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Nebraska.

A camera operated by Dana and Keith Jenkerson from south of Kansas city shows the slow velocity of the object. The meteorite appears to go through the Earth’s atmosphere at a shallow angle and fragment.
