Meteor streaks over East Coast: Millions of Americans witness fireball as yard-long rock enters Earth’s atmosphere

A meteor has flown over the Eastern Seaboard with hundreds of Americans witnessing a bright fireball streaking across the heavens.

Sighting: A local WWLP-TV viewer in Worcester in West Brookfield, Mass. submitted these photographs of the meteor blazing through the sky

Bright enough to be classified as a fireball, it lit up the night sky over eastern North America on Friday, providing a spectacle witnessed in at least 13 states, Washington, D.C. and two Canadian provinces, the American Meteor Society said.

Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environmental Office said the flash appears to be ‘a single meteor event.’ He said it ‘looks to be a fireball that moved roughly toward the southeast, going on visual reports.’

‘Judging from the brightness, we’re dealing with something as bright as the full moon. The thing is probably a yard across. We basically have (had) a boulder enter the atmosphere over the northeast.’
