RICHMOND, Va. — Numerous viewers reached out to WTVR CBS 6 after reporting seeing something strange in the sky Thursday evening.

David Livingston said he was stopped at an intersection in the West End around 6 p.m. when he saw a bright light in the southwest sky.

“It was very bright and green and possibly made it all the way to the ground,” Livingston said.

Rhonda Sams from Cartersville also saw something she believed was a meteor or possibly space debris.

“My husband, son, and I were looking south toward Cumberland County and Route 60. It could have actually fell in Amelia County,” Sams wrote. “Don’t know what it was but it was bright and burning.”

K. Learning said she was driving on I-95 south near the Doswell exit around 6 p.m. when she saw something bright in the sky.

“There was what looked like a ball of fire seen going at a rapid speed,” Learning said. “The direction it was seen going was southwest.”

Christy Dalton was driving on Route 288 when she reported seeing something “fall out of the sky.”

‎Brian Hobbs‎ also reported seeing the bright light in Emporia.

“There was a long smoke trail left behind that dissipated very slowly,” Hobbs‎ wrote. “Really a neat thing to see.”

The American Meteor Society is investigating 46 reports about fireballs seen over Virginia and North Carolina, as well as in California, Michigan, Washington, Florida, New York, New Jersey, New Mexico, Kentucky, Illinois, Georgia, Oregon, Montana and Louisiana.

A fireball is another term for a very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the planet Venus as seen in the morning or evening sky. A bolide is a special type of fireball which explodes in a bright terminal flash at its end, often with visible fragmentation. ” –The American Meteor Society
