Did You See Friday's Meteor, Greenburgh?

A flash of light across the sky Friday night had many people around the tri-state area taking to Facebook and Twitter to ask - did you see that?

The "that" in question was a fireball, according to the American Meteor Society. The organization logged more than 470 reports of fireballs Friday night in New York, Connecticut and other states along the east coast.

A fireball is a meteor that is brighter than Venus according to the AMS.

"Several thousand meteors of fireball magnitude occur in the Earth’s atmosphere each day," according to the AMS website. "The vast majority of these, however, occur over the oceans and uninhabited regions, and a good many are masked by daylight."
