Meteor Procession


The meteor procession of July 20, 1860, passed from west to east over a ground track of more than a thousand miles. The meteor descended over the Great Lakes and western New York, was moving horizontally when it reached a closest approach to the Earth's surface above the Hudson River valley, and then apparently escaped from the Earth's atmosphere over the Atlantic Ocean.
