People throughout the U.S., including Virginia, say they spotted a green fireball light up the sky Monday night.
The American Meteor Society has received more than 200 reports — mostly from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Northern Virginia, New Jersey and Delaware — of a bright fireball lighting up the night sky Sunday night.
A bright light seen traveling across the sky over the weekend by dozens of witnesses across Maryland and the region is what astronomers are calling a fragmenting meteoric fireball.
East Coast residents were buzzing on social media sites and elsewhere Friday night after a brief but bright flash of light streaked across the early-evening sky —in what experts say was almost certainly a meteor coming down.
