Sources are reporting a possible water main break in Loves Park.

It happened in the area of Windsor and N Alpine.

Reports of the road has caved in and there is a large water puddle.

Emergency personnel were on scene and blocking traffic.

Update from Rob Falzone: ” It’s on Alpine and Coronet North bound lane. They put a patch in the road a few weeks back. The pavement has been sinking ever since. A few days ago they slapped some more blacktop on it to fix the problem. Today it sunk again. The road is only 2 years old, hard to believe it’s a water main break.”


Rockford Scanner™: Fireball Flew Across Our Sky, Did You See It?

Sources are reporting a fireball flew across our sky last night.

A witness near Main and John said they saw it to the North. There are several witnesses all over our area from Byron, Rockford, Loves Park, Durand, Genoa, Rockton, Janesville, etc… That have reported seeing a fireball meteor in the sky.

The American Meteor Society has gotten reports from Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin from this meteor sighting.

Did you see the fireball?  If so, let us know!

These sources of meteoric activity are expected to be active this week.
The center of the large Anthelion (ANT) radiant is currently located at 12:36 (189) -04. This position lies in central Virgo, 3 degrees southwest of the 3rd magnitude double star known as Porrima (gamma Virginis). Due to the large size of this radiant, Anthelion activity may also appear from eastern Leo, and Crater as well as Virgo. This radiant is best placed near 0200 LST, when it lies on the meridian and is located highest in the sky. Rates at this time should be near 2 per hour no matter your location. With an entry velocity of 30 km/sec., the average Anthelion meteor would be of slow velocity.

As seen from the mid-northern hemisphere (45N) one would expect to see approximately 5 sporadic meteors per hour during the last hour before dawn as seen from rural observing sites. Evening rates would be near 1 per hour. As seen from the tropical southern latitudes (25S), morning rates would be near 8 per hour as seen from rural observing sites and 2 per hour during the evening hours. Locations between these two extremes would see activity between the listed figures. Evening rates are reduced during this period due to moonlight.

Meteor Activity Outlook for March 16-22, 2019
