The Cosmos Offered Vermont Residents Quite The Show On Sunday

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. The cosmos offered residents of Vermont quite a show over the weekend. On Sunday, a meteor the size of a bowling ball streaked across the sky over the state, appearing like a giant fireball. Atmospheric pressure combined with the velocity of its travel forced the meteor to fracture and explode with the force of 440 tons of TNT. Witnesses called into a local radio station and described a loud boom and rattling sound as the object passed. Luckily, Vermont went unharmed. It's MORNING EDITION.
