Midnight meteor streaks across Western skies
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A streaking fireball briefly illuminated parts of the Utah sky to daylight-level conditions early Wednesday, surveillance footage shows.

"It looks like a shooting star on steroids," said Seth Jarvis, director of the Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City.
