Watch: Meteor streaks through night sky over New England – CBS News

A bright fireball streaked through the night sky over Portland, Maine, overnight, lighting up the darkness and startling those who saw it. CBS Portland affiliate WGME reports it happened just before 1 a.m. Tuesday. Several local police officers caught the meteor on their dashcams, including this video posted by the Portland Police Department:

“The meteor (or alien spaceship) was caught on camera at approximately 0050 hours. Let’s hope the visitors are friendly,” the department wrote in a tongue-in-cheek Facebook post.

CBS Boston reports the meteor could be seen as far south as New Jersey and as far north as Nova Scotia. The American Meteor Society posted a stunning photo of it on Twitter, along with a map showing areas where viewers spotted the fireball.
