Twitter is abuzz tonight with reports of a large, bright meteor streaking across the night sky over the Eastern Seaboard.
Twitter user Brenton Laverty characterized it as a huge, green meteor burning up over DC just before 8 p.m.
We've had similar accounts in Connecticut, from Greenwich to Orange, up to Naugatuck and out to Bethel and every where in between — and beyond.
"my grand daughter saw it on route 8 at 8 pm and said it was amazing," Roberta Poynton wrote on the Naugatuck Patch Facebook page.
On the Orange Patch Facebook page, Michele Prezioso Mehan wrote, "Scout Troop camping in Greenwich spotted it at 755pm. It was visible for about 20 seconds. Approached West to South."
"Saw it while I was driving down Greenwood Avenue at around 7:55. It looked like it was right over Caraluzzi's!" Jeannine Fagan wrote on Bethel Patch's Facebook page.
According to several outlets, the object may have qualified as a fireball, defined by the American Meteor Society as a "very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the planet Venus in the morning or evening sky."
