Numerous residents across the Mid-Atlantic including on Delmarva took to social media on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning to say they say what was potentially a meteor lighting up the night sky.
It was seen for a few seconds around 11 p.m., with reports as far north as New York and as far south as the Carolinas. Here on Delmarva, front door security camera video captured a bright light in the sky at Bob McKinley’s residence in Ocean Pines near the Yacht Club.
Satellite imagery showed a streak around 11 p.m. hundreds of miles off the coast of New Jersey and Delaware. Scientists say that meteors typically do not reach the earth’s surface, and disintegrate shortly upon entering the earth’s atmosphere.
