Md. man says he found meteor fragments
A Frederick man who witnessed a falling meteor last week said he has found parts of it.
Al LaBrush was walking out of Danielle's restaurant in Frederick on Tuesday night when he said he heard a crackling, popping sound. He looked up and saw a white, sparkling meteor about 1,500 to 3,000 feet away, going from the south to the east/northeast, he said. Several others in the area reported seeing a meteor about the same time, around 6:50 p.m. Tuesday.
Two days later, he went out to look for fragments of the meteor and said he found several.
