Meteor spotted in Florida streaking across night sky

- What appears to be a meteor was caught on video by a Florida resident and reported by dozens of others. 

The fireball is seen streaking across the sky on home security video around 6:30 p.m. Monday night in Riverview. 

Heather Fox says her husband was outside in the yard when he saw it. On the video, two people can be seen standing in the yard on video then noticing the fireball after it lights up the night sky, illuminating the clouds as it disappears. 

There were at least 58 reports of fireball spottings over Florida around the same time.
