Meteor fireball over New England caught on webcam
There was a huge meteor fireball spotted over much of New England and beyond very early Tuesday morning (May 17th).
The American Meteor Society reports that the fireball was seen primarily from Maine, but was also seen in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as in Ontario and Québec.
The AMS has received hundreds of reports so far about the meteor, which was seen around 12:50 Tuesday morning.
