Catching a speeding meteor in the night sky is something that people hope for, even as adults. There's nothing like the feeling of seeing a shooting star in the night sky.

Most meteors that you can see in the night sky are very small in size; however, one meteor on Saturday night was much bigger than usual, and it made for a phenomenal view for locals in the Buffalo region.
