Did you see it? A meteor streaked across the sky over the Mid Atlantic overnight and three videos below show it. According to the American Meteor Society, there were 325 witness just before 11 PM on Tuesday April 16. The majority of reports came from Washington DC. But the viewing area included Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The collaboration of reports suggested this started from Vineland, NJ and traveled south over the Atlantic before burning out east of the Delaware beaches.
Videos Captured The Event
Celest Linthincum said her nephew saw it. Perhaps this was him we can hear with excitement on the video.
This was uploaded to the American Meteor Society from C Stearns, but the location was not given.

Danniel Rodarte captured this. Please turn the audio down if viewing at work or in front of children (at school) as the excitement got the better of him.
Some reports were as far as New England and North Carolina.
