Milwaukee County Transit System buses recorded footage of “one heck of a meteor” on Saturday evening.
“That was one heck of a meteor at 5:43pm tonight,” local Fox meteorologist Tom Wachs tweeted shortly after the celestial pyrotechnics ended. “Saw a huge fireball (also known as a bolide) looking NE from Bayside, WI (Milwaukee). Anyone else see it?”

Along with the northbound buses — who only caught their shots by happenstance — University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Space Science and Engineering Center also got footage of the meteor as it soared over Lake Mendota.
