Fireball Burns in Skies Over New England

28 December, 2017, 02:24 | Author: Hope Soto

The glowing object was seen by many just before 6 p.m. Emmanuel Preville, who lives in Montreal, said he was out walking his puppy when he saw it.

New Englanders got a special surprise in the night sky on December 26 - and no, it wasn't an early New Year's celebration. No need to check your glasses; it turns out it was seen across Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Canada. The meteor that was sighted most likely burned up before hitting the ground, and was probably quite small - around the size of a golf ball, otherwise it would have created a "tremendous explosion", Janes said.

"Events like this do happen a few times a week in the USA, but for an individual person, it is usually a once in a lifetime thing", Mike Hankey, an operations manager at the American Meteor Society, told Time. "There's, every once in a while, these really great events, and sometimes we can predict them, but a lot of times you're just lucky to see it", said Sarah Hoffschwelle, of the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. It also did not appear to be part of a larger meteor shower, and Hankey said it was more of a "random event".

A transformer issue cut power to all of Mickey's Toontown and parts of Fantasyland, Brown said. The guests sat "25 minutes in the dark" and were eventually escorted off.


A dazzling fireball was seen flashing in the night sky above the New England's MA area.

The suspected meteor was caught on camera in several locations, including a security camera at the National Weather Service's office in Gray, Maine.
