Meteor ducks artwork inspired by Portugal meteor

Remember the meteor ducks? That is, the ducks that witnessed the fireball over Portugal? Dexerto on X posted the video above in a tweet on May 21, 2024. Now artists are sharing many renderings of the ducks on social media, adding the hashtag #meteorducks.

On May 18, 2024, a fireball lit up the skies of Portugal, including above a farm where some ducks looked up to see the sky brighten overhead. Now artists are capturing their renditions of that scene. See some of the creations below, and search #meteorducks for many, many more!
