    A meteorite has hit the ground in Menominee county, sometime  around 
    6pm this evening. No reports yet about injury or damage.  Individuals 
    in Shawano, miles from the site, report feeling their  houses  shake.

    Hello All,
    Rhinelander TV 12 reports at 10 PM that the  meteor was spotted and 
    possibly landed in Lincoln County.  Supposedly  seen by several 
    loggers.  This is a long way from Shawano.   Wonder what's up?
    Rhinelander is in far northern Wisconsin, N45:36; W89:11
    Shawano is at N44:47, W88:36
    Predicting the landing spot for fireballs is notoriously difficult and it may well have landed in a different state or country.
