MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Multiple Milwaukee County Transit System buses captured video of a meteor as it flew across the sky on Saturday evening.

The buses that got the shot were traveling north on multiple routes around 5:45 p.m.

The meteor, which appeared like a falling ball of light, was visible from at least four areas of the city. 

“That was one heck of a meteor,” local meteorologist Tom Wachs tweeted, also calling it “a huge fireball (also known as a bolide).”

University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Space Science and Engineering Center caught video of the meteor, too, flying over Lake Mendota.

This isn’t the first time Milwaukee buses caught a meteor on camera. They shared videos in May and earlier this month.
