A fireball was spotted across the skies of the Eastern United States and parts of Canada over the weekend.

According to our sister station, Jersey 101.5, the American Meteor Society received numerous phone calls Saturday evening of a fireball streaking across the sky at about 6:15 p.m.

Residents from the Mid Atlantic all the way Ontario reportedly saw an object, which, as some eye witnesses say, started as one object then split into three separate pieces.

Anyone see the fireball in the Hudson Valley?

According to the American Meteor Society, a fireball is defined as a meteor brighter than the planet Venus. Saturday's event was probably a small meteor burning up in the Earth's atmosphere.
