Hundreds of people across the Northeast, including many on Long Island, reported seeing a streaking fireball in the sky Sunday night at 5:20 p.m., according to the the American Meteor Society.
Mike Hankey of the American Meteorological Society
told the Cape Cod Times that the phenomenon was caused by a meteor than entered the atmosphere over southwest Vermont, heading north.
Viewers report the flash was brighter than a full moon.
I personally saw the fireball in St. James, and it looked like a bright blue streak that flashed brightly, twice before vanishing.
Did you see it? Let us know.
