DASHCAM VIDEO: Meteor captured over Portland, Maine
This spectacular sight was captured in Maine on a police car's dash camera.
A police sergeant caught the bright burning mass hurtling through the sky Tuesday. The American Meteor Society say it received 240 reports of sightings from New Jersey to Canada. The society believes it's a fireball, which is what they say is a very bright meteor.
We usually do not see them because the fall usually happens during the daylight or over uninhabited areas.
