A security camera above a car yard in Seaford, Delaware, and another in Maryland captured footage of what appeared to be a meteor travelling across the skyline late on Friday.
Bill Cooke of Nasa’s Meteoroid Environmental Office said the meteor was widely seen, with more than 350 reports on the website of the American Meteor Society alone.
Pitts said experts could not be 100 percent certain of what it was, but the descriptions by so many people were “absolutely consistent” with those of a meteor.
