Apparent meteor shower flashes through the St. Louis sky

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Social media in the St. Louis area is aglow after an apparent meteor flashed throughout the night sky Monday. 

Earth Cam has a great shot of the St. Louis skyline when all of a sudden you can see a massive flash of light brightening the night sky.

The apparent meteor shot through the sky shortly before 9 p.m. local time.

People in Illinois also reported seeing the meteor.

Another shot of the meteor was captured on a doorbell camera in a suburb of St. Louis.

Meteorologists say the object appears to have completely burned up in the atmosphere.

(-- anchor tag --)so - it caused quite a light show, but the likelihood that anything more than dust ultimately fell to earth is very slim.
