The American Meteor Society has received 240 reports so far about a fireball event over Northeastern US on May 17, 2016 around 12:50 am.

“The fireball was seen primarily from Maine but witnesses from Vermont, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Ontario (Canada) and Québec (Canada) also reported the event,” reported the society.

The society is asking anyone who witnessed last night events to fill out an official report and share photos.

If you witnessed this event please fill an official fireball report.
If you have a video or a photo of this event please contact us.


The society described the meteor as “an amazing experience for witnesses”.

The feature photo above was captured by the Portsmouth NH webcam.

The video below is of a Portland Police Officer’s dashcam which captured the meteor streaking through the sky.
