Did you see a flash in the sky Monday night?

Multiple reports came into the WTOP newsroom Monday night about a fireball in the area. One listener traveling eastbound on Interstate 66 toward the Route 7 exit said they saw one headed northbound.

Greg Redfern, WTOP’s space expert, said he and another person saw a bright fireball to the northeast around 8:25 p.m. Redfern says the fireball appeared white to him while another said it was red.

It was moving downward and was “bright as tonight’s moon” said Redfern. While he says his view was partially blocked by trees, he says it was a good one.

So far there have been more than 30 reports of fireball sightings to theĀ American Meteor Society [2], seen as far north as New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania and other northeastern areas.
