Cedar Rapids - If you were outside enjoying the weather Wednesday night, you might have spotted a cosmic light show streak across the Iowa sky.

The meteor burning through the atmosphere appeared to be a "giant fireball" and reports have been coming into the KCRG-TV9 newsroom from viewers across Eastern Iowa, southwest Wisconsin and northwest Illinois.

KCRG-TV9 First Alert Storm Team Meteorologist Justin Gehrts said that falling stars like this are quite common and that they're nothing to worry over.
