Judging by the relative silence in the area, Minnesotans didn’t see the meteor that streaked across the upper Midwest sky around 1:30 this morning.
[Update: Former Wyoming Minn., mayor Sheldon Anderson says he saw it around 1:25 travelling east from Zimmerman, Minn.]
Plover, Wis., did.

A camera atop a building at the University of Wisconsin in Madison also captured the meteor.
It cast a lovely glow on Oshkosh.
The American Meteor Society says it’s received almost 200 reports of sightings as of this morning.
It said the meteor travelled southwest to northeast.
