Large and bright meteor is tracked across the east coast
In Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey, as well as far south as Washington D.C., observers witnessed the descent of a meteor of large size and brilliance, falling towards the south at an angle of around 20 degrees from the vertical. People in Delaware heard what they claimed to be a loud but distant impact. Scientists estimated the point of impact as being in the Delaware region but no strike was found. (By John Osborne)
