A fireball was seen in the sky in New Jersey and several other northeastern states on Sunday night.
The fireball moved from east to west with its visible flight ending somewhere near Poughkeepsie, New York just after 7:20 pm, according to the American Meteorological Association.
AMS said there were more than 210 reports of fireball from New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Delaware, Maryland, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Québec, Canada.
A National Weather Service meteorologist described the fireball as “bright and low flying.”;
The fireballs travel in the sky hundreds of times a day, but most take place in oceans or uninhabited areas or are obscured by daylight, AMS said.
