Possible meteor spotted flying over New England

A possible meteor was spotted by New England residents Tuesday evening.

— -- A bright "fireball" streaking through the New England sky had residents talking from Maine to Massachusetts on Tuesday evening.

Residents in the Boston area reported seeing a possible meteor flying through the sky before 6 p.m, according to ABC's Boston affiliate WCVB.

A web camera on Maine’s Mount Agamenticus captured the object in the sky around 5:52 p.m.

"I saw a bright blue flash while I was out shoveling, then a fireball like missile pass over me," a WCVB Facebook user said.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the object.
