A fireball was spotted over the area and much of the Mid-Atlantic and New England early Thursday.
The fireball streaked across the sky around 6:15 a.m. and was estimated by the American Meteor Society of coming down over New York.
An Upper Makefield resident reported seeing the fireball and submitted his report to the American Meteor Society.
“This was an incredible sight,” Jim S. of Levittown wrote in his American Meteor Society report.
Another Levittown man reported fireball in the sky along with about 260 other people in the Mid-Atlantic and New England.
“It was amazing! Very bright,” a Bensalem resident wrote.
The fireball was believed to have been traveling southeast to northwest. It only was visible for a few seconds.
“Several thousand meteors of fireball magnitude occur in the Earth’s atmosphere each day. The vast majority of these, however, occur over the oceans and uninhabited regions, and a good many are masked by daylight. Those that occur at night also stand little chance of being detected due to the relatively low numbers of persons out to notice them,” the American Meteor Society said.
