Sightings of fiery streak across Southern California asky

November 7, 2013 2:01:43 AM PST
Southern Californians from Santa Barbara to San Diego have reported seeing a fireball that forecasters say was most likely a meteor streaking across the sky.

The National Weather Service says the sightings reported last night are most likely associated with the South Taurids meteor shower that has been especially active in early November.

Astronomers say the Taurids don't bring big numbers of visible meteors, but a high percentage of extremely bright ones that look like fireballs.
