New information about the meteor seen over Arizona and parts of New Mexico on June 2, 2016.

According to Lowell Observatory’s Dr. Nick Moskovitz the meteor seen in the early morning hours of June 2nd would have been slightly larger than first reported and because of the size there is a strong possibility that fragments of the meteor made it to Earth. The general location of these fragments are known to scientist who are attempting to collect some and hopefully learn a little more about its origin.
