Incredible video shows meteor blaze in Pennsylvania sky
A new video shows the moment of a bright object blazed into the Pittsburgh sky on Thursday evening.
In a clip from the doorbell camera, Phil Haddad captured the bright light passing over the Pennsylvania town.
“I don’t tweet often, but when I do it’s because I captured a meteor on my doorbell camera,” he tweeted.
The local National Weather Service office also shared video of what it called a “meteor/fireball.”
“While we don’t specialize in meteors (well, hydrometeors, but that’s different), many reported seeing a meteor/fireball cross the sky at 7:33 this evening,” it noted.
The American Meteor Society said it had received 830 reports of a fireball observed over several states in Friday.
These states include Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
