A large meteor observed over the main island of Hawaii

A large and visible meteor was observed soon after nightfall from the slope of the Mauna Kea volcano on the main island of the Hawaiian chain.  Observers stated that it disappeared near the crater of Mauna Kea but no confirmation of a meteor strike was made.  Just a few hours later, coincidentally, a large meteor was observed over New Jersey descending into the region of Delaware and the Chesapeake Bay.  (By John Osborne)
