Meteor Burns Up Over Skies of Washington DC!!

Shit was crazy it was small and with a blueish tint and got bigger and super bright then dissipated! It was crazy!!!

Meteor Burns Up Over Skies of Washington DC, East Coast




Shortly before 8PM local time (or during the first intermission of the Caps/Jets game), Twitter blew up with first-hand reports of a green-colored meteor falling from the sky. Fox 5 in Washington D.C. reported that their helicopter crew saw the burning rock from the air and it was visible for five to six seconds.


In Russia, where fraud and uninsured drivers are prevalent, most motorists have dash cameras to document possible accidents — which would explain why there was so much media of the Chelyabinsk meteor. With only a few seconds of opportunity for people to pull out their phones, the only plausible photo (which is uncomfirmed) has come from @magaman, who claims he snapped this screenshot from his company’s security camera.

RMNB reader Jenn McAdoo saw the meteor fall from the sky and said, “[It was] bright orange as it flashed then dimmed to a bluish color as it streaked to its imminent demise.”

So, space. You realize the Caps won 6-1 tonight, right? If we’re going to make the playoffs, please send us one of these falling death rocks every game day. K, thx.

If you witnessed the meteor tonight, tell us your story in the comments below. And if you’ve got photos, you know where to send them.
