This is VERY cool!!
Portland police captured this incredible video of a meteor shooting through the sky early this morning.
The video was actually caught by a sergeant’s dashcam as he was looking for speeders. Check it out…
Apparently the bright flash was visible from several states and was said to be a meteor burning up as it passed through the Earth’s atmosphere.
The American Meteor Society reported more than 300 sightings in several states and even parts of Canada!
Darn, I missed it!
The Maine Mineral & Gem Museum suspects the meteor crashed into the woods of north-western Maine. They are offering a $20,000 reward if someone recovers a piece of the meteorite weighing at least 2.2 pounds!
I don’t know about you, but if I found a piece – I’d keep it! Would you?
