Meteor over North Carolina? Video shows bright flash in the sky

RALEIGH, N.C. – Did you see Thursday night’s meteor over North Carolina?

WRAL-TV reported that Dan Perjar, a software developer at North Carolina State University, captured the apparent fireball on his car’s dashcam.

The 5-second video captures a quick flash of light shooting across the sky at around 10:17 p.m. Thursday above Interstate 440 in Raleigh.

The fireball was also seen in Virginia, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, according to the American Meteor Society.

“Sizable meteor caught on my dash cam in Raleigh tonight,” Perjar posted on YouTube.

Fireball sightings were reported across North Carolina in Holly Ridge, Wake Forest, Pittsboro, Concord, Cary and other locations, according to spotter reports from Thursday night.
