Let’s see what the NHHS students have to say about the meteor hitting in Lake St. Louis.
“I was in Washington at the park, and I saw a bluish white streak going through the sky. It was louder than thunder, and it shook my car,” said senior Brandon Young.
Junior Brande Kubiak responded by saying, “To be honest I didn’t see it or hear it, and I’m kind of disappointed because I’m so unaware of my surroundings, I can’t even hear or see a meteor.”
“It’s pretty cool that a whole meteor hit Missouri and it’s even better because it hit St. Louis, which is extremely close to us”, mentioned junior Jon Russo.
“I wish I had gotten the chance to see it because, from what I have heard about it, it was amazing and cool,” replied senior Paige Remillard.
Senior Austin Yochim responded, “I was sitting in my car, and I see a big flash in the sky, and I was outside Walmart, and it shook their windows.”
This unexpected meteor has definitely brought some attention to the staff and students at the New Haven High School.
