N.C. driver captures streaking meteor

1 post in this topic

RALEIGH, N.C., July 18 (UPI) --A barrage of meteors splashed across the night sky late Thursday along the Eastern Seaboard, and one meteor burned particularly bright as it disintegrated in the Earth's atmosphere.

The fireball was caught on video by a Dan Perjar, a software developer from Raleigh, North Carolina -- his dash cam rolling as he made his way east on I-440, heading back from Cary, home to North Carolina State.

The American Meteor Society received similar fireball reports from at least 95 sky-watchers in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, New Jersey and the District of Columbia. A map on their website shows all the reports of meteor sightings from Thursday night. Anyone who saw a meteor light up last night's sky can fill out a witness report.
