Fireball Streaks Through New England Night Sky


A huge flash lit up the sky across New England around 1 a.m. Tuesday. Hundreds of people across New England reported seeing the flash, which was likely a fireball.

A fireball is essentially a bright meteor, or object that enters Earth's atmosphere.

The sight was captured on police dash camera in Portland, Maine, and also spotted by necn viewers from Killington, Vermont to Haverhill, Massachusetts. It lasted just a few seconds, but illuminated the night sky.

"The meteor (or alien spaceship) was caught on camera at approximately 0050 hours," the Portland Police Department wrote on Facebook. "Let's hope the visitors are friendly. They could just be some of Stephen King's friends on there way to visit him. Whomever they are I'm sure we could win them over with a whoopie pie."

Atop the Mount Washington Observatory, fog prevented observers from noticing anything.
