FOX 16's Greg Dee and Darryl Heath, President of the Central Arkansas Astronomical Society break down the video and show a meteorite found right in Arkansas.
That's on top of news that a space rock half the size of a football field will be setting a record for the closeness of its flyby.
It will pass within 21,000 miles of earth, and that's closer than most of our gps and communication satellites which float about at 26,000 miles above our heads.
