Witnesses recount massive fireball over Great Lakes

Wisconsin - (NBC) - People are still talking about the meteor that lit up the skies over the Midwest and Wisconsin.

"I thought someone was shooting off fireworks," said witness Kim Kienitz. "When we looked up and the bright ball was sparking behind it and it went right past us."

She said the blast of the meteor breaking the sound barrier was so powerful her son, who didn't see the meteor, thought it was an earthquake.
