Meteor Splashes Down in Ionian

A small meteor fragment entered the atmosphere over the Ionian Sea on Wednesday night, blazing across the sky as it burned up.

The fiery trail alarmed people on the islands of Cephalonia and Zakynthos where the phenomenon was most visible, as well as in the western cities of Ioannina and Patra. No injuries or damage were reported.

People who witnessed the meteor fall into the sea reported a bright light across the sky and a loud thundering sound at approximately 21:30 on Wednesday night.
