Police Dashcam Captures Fireball Streaking Across New Jersey Sky

A New Jersey police officer on patrol during an overnight shift caught a spectacular sight on his dashcam video.

Hamilton Township police Sgt. Michael Virga's dashcam captured the fireball streaking across the sky around 3:09 a.m. Saturday, the Mays Landing-based police department said. "I just saw a little blip - it lit up the entire sky like a lime green streak".

Everything you need to know about these rare fireballs can be found in the American Meteor Society's handy FAQ. The fireball seen in the sky is technically called a bolide, an extremely bright meteor whose exploding flash can be twice as luminous as the moon.
