Meteor over DC? #DCMeteor
At approximately 7:54 PM, people around the District of Columbia began reporting that they'd seen a bright light streak across the sky. As of 8:03, no one had confirmed what actually happened. An hour an a half later, news outlets called it a meteor, landing somewhere in DelMarVa.
