Amateur Video Captured Meteor In Night Sky Over Greenwood

There have been numerous meteor sightings across the United States in recent days. This amateur video captured one in the night sky over Greenwood this past Friday. NASA scientists are mum over whether the uptick in meteor activity has anything to do with the approaching Comet Ison. What has been described as the comet of the century by the Russian scientists who discovered it last year is impacting Mars over the next few days as it makes its closest pass by the red planet. It is expected to impact Earth in early January as it passes on its way through our solar system on a path headed in the direction of our sun.
