ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – An out of this world sight dozens of people spotted in the sky over St. Louis earlier this week was in deed a meteor. NASA reports that it was a meteor that burned up along a 25 mile track, starting near Hannibal. It was about 30 miles above earth.
The meteor was traveling about 49,000 miles per hour, so it didn’t take long to disappear. Nearly 300 people reported seeing it.
