Mysterious Saratoga County Explosion Blamed on Meteor

Falling Asteroid Into Atmosphere

We have an official Statement on an incident in Saratoga County this past Sunday night. Dozens of 911 phone calls from residents in 5 to 7 towns all reported a loud explosion and some of the callers saying they saw green lights in the sky.

Now Saratoga County Sheriffs are saying the likely cause was a meteor entering and then burning up in the atmosphere. Sheriffs department officials say they consulted with the FBI, FAA, the National Weather Service, NASA as well as with other scientists to come to the conclusion that it was a meteor.
