Possible meteor captured by public works shop security camera

The National Weather Service reported a possible meteor over Iowa last night, possibly catching it on one of its cameras.

This morning, Assistant Streets Superintendent Dan Lange discovered that a security camera at the public works facility on S. Front Street captured the falling object.

The American Meteor Society says it has received more than 1,000 reports of the event.

The Weather Channel says that while such meteors aren’t rare, catching one this visible in a populated area is.
