Fireballs in the sky over the US and Europe all captured on November 14, 2017

Several meteors lit the sky over the United States and Europe on Tuesday night.

Fireballs were captured over Phoenix, over Southern Ohio and later in the night two meteors crossed over France and the other over Germany which was seen as far away as Italy and Switserland.


Although it seems that these fireballs were at least somewhat related with the Tuarids and with the comet Encke, the fireballs that occurred in Arizona and France are not related to the Tuarids due to their origin and direction, the fireballs over Ohio and Germany were probably Tuarids.

Below videos show the fireball that flew across the Phoenix sky and captured by the Phoenix city Cam and the fireball over Southern Ohio uploaded by J. Verrico on the American Meteor Society Website.

The American Meteor Society has noted before that there has been a dramatic increase in fireball /meteor activity since the last two years.
