Meteorite Seen over Central Israel

A meteorite was seen, Thursday evening, in the skies over central Israel. The meteorite, estimated to weigh from hundreds of grams to a few kilograms, turned into a fireball as it went through the atmosphere in an easterly direction and burned up without touching the ground.

The phenomenon followed a meteorite shower, earlier in the week, which may have been hidden by cloudy skies.
