Update: 2:45 AM: NASA has confirmed with satellite radar that a meteor has struck the earth, although no exact location has been given yet.
A very large fireball – or series of them – was seen this evening across several states and is apparently causing strange interference with cellular, internet, and even satellite communications throughout the Ohio Valley.
Local news outlet FOX19 reports:
The American Meteor Society quickly received almost 200 online reports of the event, with 131 reports coming from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, and 46 more from Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia as of shortly after midnight Eastern Daylight Time.
Radio show “Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis” received dozens of calls from frightened witnesses, one of whom also put the phone up to the Satellite-connected TV service during the call, which was making a very odd and very persistent noise consistent with EM interference.
Witnesses also turned to Twitter to express their shock and awe at the event:
Watched fireball over north-central WV. Brightest explosion / fastest movement I’ve ever seen or imagined. Fully expected a shockwave. None

The American Meteor Society has not yet updated the site to reflect the latest reports ; However, concerning the sightings on the 26th, they said:
AMS received 715 reports about this fireball seen over IA, IL, IN, KY, MI, MO, OH, TN and WI on September 26th 2013 around 10:59 (UTC).
This comes on the heels of fireballs being reported across the world over the past few days, with over 400 being reported on the 26th, and a total of 715 by midnight on the 28th.
This September has been a busy month for fireballs in the USA, the latest marking the 13th significant event so far this month, more than any other month in the history of the online AMS Fireball Report. (A significant event is defined as a fireball event reported by 25 or more witnesses).
