Wellman Provisional (f) (H3.5)

Around 1999, a cotton farmer uncovered a stone while plowing about a half-mile south of Wellman, Texas. He kept the stone in his garage until 2004, when he contacted McCartney Taylor, who identified the stone as a meteorite. The Wellman meteorite is an ordinary chondrite and has a total known weight of 16.8 kg.

    Hello,
    I am looking for some help as I am new to meteors. Back in the summer I was at my brothers house in Kentucky when his wife and her daughter saw a meteor during the day time on a sunny day. Do you think it is worth looking for? I think I might be able to find the exact day and approx. time. Does the weather radar keep a listing of this type of occurance?
    Thanks for any help.
    Sheila
