Observers from New Jersey to Ohio got a super sight Sunday night.
A meteor blazed across the sky at a speed of tens of miles per second.
The American Meteorological Society reports it has received almost 200 reports of the fireball. Scientists say the meteor was 60 to 100 miles above the Earth, and about the size of a smart car.
Where did it come from?
It spent the last three to 4 billion years orbiting the sun before entering the Earth's atmosphere.
After thrilling earthlings, scientists say the burning rock probably shot back into space.
