A meteor passed over west Denver Colorado the night of July 28 and people in Golden might even be able to find some debris.We actually have a ton of space dust falling to earth every single day, it’s just more spectacular when you have the large chunks fall,” she added. The fireball on Tuesday night was likely a few feet across. Typically, Pequette said shooting stars are as small as a grain of sand. Since Tuesday’s fireball was relatively big, Pequette recommends that people around Golden take a look around. They might just find something other-worldly.
