That mysterious sparkling light? It happens, it was meteor.

The meter who was playing around Central Florida sky on Tuesday was "a big fireball" that could rely on the Atlantic Ocean with ten years of kiloton energy – or the explosive force that would be equal with 100 tons of TNT, by sky tower group.

"We are still processing the data, but it has been a great deal, it's possible to go around," said Dwayne Free, a director of the Spalding Allsky Camera Network that provides data for the NASA Neighborous Neighborhood Threat Assessment Project in California.

The private group – working as part of a joint project with the Department of Aerospace, Physics and Space Sciences of the Florida Institute of Technology, co-ordinates a network of 40 specialty cameras worldwide to detect and track the meters, some of the major firewall walls called bolides.

Not unusual

He described them as "routine events" that appear across the globe. Greater ones like the one that can be seen from Central Florida, anywhere in the world, at least once a month.

The fireball – also recorded by a broad-angle camera at Florida Tech – It's seen about 2 a.m., and residents from Titusville visited Palm Bay.

Media reports also reported that the meteor, burning with blue, blue glow, was visible to Jacksonville.

Similar incidents have been recorded with more of the most recent meter in the last week, and large fireballs in western Cuba – exploding a 1.4km bomb, said Free – and slamming into Venezuela, leaving behind a small fire, show media reports.

In 2013, massive fire fighting was exploding in the waters over Chelyabinsk, Russia, injuring almost 1,000 people, depending on windows and as a result of structural breakdown, in line with media reports. That investigation, considered as a one-to-50-year-old event, exploded with a 440-kilometer force, followed by experts.

Jacob meteor could show a meteor on Tuesday, which shows clear white light through the dark sky, and then sneezing to black after a wonderful flash.

"It exploded and that is the reason that appears on the bright screen in the video," Free said, who was studying meteorists since 1985.

Witness accounts

Dustin Lightsey, resident of One Palm Bay, was driving home when he saw the fireball was pulling up the night sky.

"No noise was heard but I just saw the sky, it was a green neon fire ball with blue streaks," said Lightsey, adding that the controller looked as if he could go nearby.

"He looked like it was in a wooded area. I drove around but he did not find anything," he said.

Fire camera capture was captured which provides information to the Spalding Allsky Camera Network, said Free.

Some of the social media residents reported that they were feeling or listening.

"It's feasible. The flash of the camera tells me to have a sound. When these things explode, it's like a nuclear explosion," said Free, his opinion that the fire ball was in the direction of the sea, and small energy, releasing one tenth of a kiloton explosion.

He also said that the greenish color of witnesses had been indicating that meteor had metallic properties. Some meteors are made up of ice or other rubbish covers, experts are put out.

The 45th Squadron Weather with FLORIDA TODAY confirmed that the meteor would go through the sky of the night early on Tuesday. He said free of charge that his data, shared with organizations around the world, will be given to the NASA Planning Protection Office for further evaluation.

The agency, which is being supervised by NASA, is responsible for monitoring space that can be hazardous – asteroids and comets – which may disturb the ground orbit.

The office assesses possible threats and works to plan projects that may turn such objects physically because the predictions come close to each other.

Experts are likely to have more opportunities to implement their theories, experts said. In terms of metabolism similar to the person who appeared on Tuesday, they are more frequent.

"The metro seems to be more frequent, more recently," said Free. "But this may be because we have better coverage or we may lose them more frequently."

According to a NASA report, this was probably an exceptionally bright meter on the South Atlantic Ocean earlier this month.
