Did anyone else catch that? Lots of people are reporting seeing a meteor light up the skies over several East Coast cities tonight, including New York and Washington, D.C.
Whoa! I think I just saw a meteor.

#meteor I Saw it just north of Baltimore city. It looked like it was traveling east and fizzled out in atmosphere.

Just saw what appears to be a pretty big #meteor here in CT. It was very slow and bright green. Crazy! Anyone else see that?

I didn't see a #meteor but I did see a much larger than average aircraft flying slowly over my neighborhood. It was travelling south west.

I missed the meteor – but I think I spotted a Delta jetliner heading for LaGuardia. #NYCMETEOR

Can’t we all just get along? We thought we could have one nice hate-free astronomical post, but no.

No, this is not a picture of the meteor. It’s a picture of a meteor, but this photo has been on the Internet for a while.
This meteor photo is making its rounds on social media – don't be fooled! It is from this 2010 Maryland weather blog http://t.co/WhwDueRtko
