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.

    Then suddenly, a mighty angel picked up a boulder shaped like a huge Mill
    Stone, and threw it into The
    *Atlantic Ocean,*
    and cried mightily with a loud voice saying!!
    Just as I have thrown away this stone, the great city of Babylon will be thrown down with violence , and shall never be found again!!!
    The Book Of Revelation, Chapter 18 verse 21
