Witnesses across the United States have reported several strange sights in the skies over the last 24 hours.

The American Meteor Society is reporting that four large fireballs were spotted across the country on Sept. 23.

The locations include areas over Florida/Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Three of the four events occurred within 1.5 hours of each other.

“It is rare that multiple significant fireball events occur and are reported to the AMS in the same evening. After analysis of the time, proximity of witnesses and pointing data gathered, it was determined that each event was unique,” the AMS wrote on its website.
