John saw a huge white flash in the northeast, over the mountain, at about 10:30 tonight. The cats were excited and wanted to go outside (Oscar did escape). John thought it was lightning at first, but reported a clear and starry sky. I posted the question on Facebook, and saw that Fox44 had already posted it. Dozens of people had already responded. One lady shared the link to the site above and we saw that the entire continent was empty except for northern New England and southern Canada. Reports of the light are coming in from all over the north country. Reportedly what everyone saw was a bolide: "A large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere."

I'll let you know what we find out.

    1. Thank you, Anon. I have put your link on Facebook. I found my own post here on that Twitter link! Cool! But worrisome: one tweet mentioned an impact. Could be an Internet rumor . . . but I hope nobody was hurt.

  3. I was looking northwest when I saw a flash of light here in Plattsburgh, NY. Didn't realize it was a Bolide until an hour later. I wrote a little about it on my astronomy blog. Since I didn't actually see it (just the flash), I didn't have much of a description to give.
