Did You See Tuesday Night's Fireball Meteor?

Tuesday night was the start of the Lyrid meteor shower.

So, I'm a little bummed that I missed last night's (April 16th) impressive fireball that streaked across the New Jersey sky.

A meteor was seen along the U.S. East Coast on late Tuesday night, witnesses say. We received reports from Washington DC, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Vermont and West Virginia.

Reports of a meteor also came in from Brazil.
