COBB COUNTY, Ga. — People in East Cobb witnessed a special sight Wednesday night.
Former Channel 2 reporter and now Cobb County spokesperson Ross Cavitt shared a video of a flash in the sky Wednesday night, from his dashboard camera.
He said it was even more impressive in person.
It was a shooting star. Basically, what that is is a meteor.
As it moves through the atmosphere, it rubs up against friction. It heats up, it glows, it eventually burns up and doesn’t reach the ground in the case of a meteor.
