Another meteor? Reports coming in about flash in Indiana sky

Several people have reported seeing a possible meteor in the sky over central Indiana, a night after a meteor over Michigan captivated the region.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A day after the nation was fascinated by an apparent meteor flashing over Michigan, Indiana may have gotten its own show.

Several people are reporting seeing a flash in the sky around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday in central Indiana. Police departments to the east of Indianapolis, including Morristown and sheriff's deputies in Shelby, Rush and Henry County reported seeing the "bright blue green flash" to the northeast.


Viewer Bryan Bunton shared video from his home security system on the south side, facing to the north.

Another viewer tweeted security cameras from west of Marion that show the flash of light on nine screens simultaneously.


The flash was so bright, it cast a crisp shadow across Caleb Martin's yard in New Palestine.

Viewer Matt Bradshaw's security cameras on the south side also caught some of the flash from the meteor.

Live Doppler 13 Meteorologist Angela Buchman said she saw the flash as she drove on Interstate 70 on the east side of Indianapolis.






People in other states have also reported seeing the potential meteor, including residents of the Chicago and Toledo, Ohio areas.




Tuesday night, a meteor shot across the sky in southern Michigan, shaking homes and setting of a storm of videos taken from home security cameras and vehicle dashboard cameras.

Reports are also coming in to the American Meteor Society's website from Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio of the sighting. That website reportedly crashed due to heavy traffic after the Michigan sighting.
