Saturday's fireball spotted in 5 states

Posted: Updated:

If you blinked, you may have just missed it, but Saturday's "falling star" definitely got a lot of attention across north Georgia.

The fireball apparently started in north Alabama and then moved in north Georgia where it broke apart.

Dozens of FOX 5 viewers captured the fiery streak racing across the sky around 7:30 p.m.

Julian Gray, the curator of Tellus Museum in Cartersville, says a camera on the roof of the facility is part of NASA's southeast network of cameras that is set up to capture such fireballs. He tells FOX 5 News that events like Saturday night's are not uncommon.

Reports poured in on Saturday night's event from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia.
