Scores of reports are coming in Monday of a large “fireball” in the sky over the East Coast and Midwest, the American Meteor Society (AMS) reports.
As of Monday afternoon, the society had received 157 reports about the fireball from as far north as New Hampshire, as far south as Virginia and as far west as Ohio.
The fireball appeared around 11 p.m. on Sunday night, and coincided with reports of “shooting stars” and meteors, the Capital Weather Gang noted.
A fireball is defined as a “bright meteor,” according to the AMS.
USA TODAY received an eyewitness report of the fireball from Toby Adair, a shrimp fisherman south of Jacksonville, Fla., who said it was “huge.”
