NASA says that flash reports are consistent with meteor shower in East Coast. But some said there were UFO sightings reports too.

Was that meteor shower or UFOs flying over the East Coast. A number of people in the area have talked about watching bright light zooming over the sky not very late in the night and they are discussing the subject in detail on many social media sites including the biggest such site Facebook with more than a billion members. But NASA and other government agencies have not said a single word about the so called meteor shower except discussing the aftermath.

To be true, other than the discussion about the so called meteor shower on different social networking websites, there are no reports of the same by weather channels or any other television channel being able to get it photographs snapped. But the very same thing has been happening about the UFO sightings across the world. UFOs have been sighted in many areas of the world but rarely these UFOs have been seen by weather channels or other television channels. So was this really a UFO or there were just a few meteors that accidentally fell in this part of the world.

While talking about the development a somewhat puzzled NASA official Bill Cooke said that it looked as if just a single meteor hitting the earth. To be true meteors fall on the earth in bunches of several dozen within a certain time span. He added that it was “a single meteor event…looks to be a fireball that moved roughly toward the southeast, going on visual reports…Judging from the brightness, we’re dealing with something as bright as the full moon…The thing is probably a yard across. We basically have (had) a boulder enter the atmosphere over the northeast.”

To be true despite there being no advance warning of any meteors falling on the earth the American Meteor Society says it got more than 300 reports from North Carolina, Washington, New York and New England. The society goes on to add that many hundred more men and women registered their observations on Twitter.  One Twitter user, known as @Married2TheNite, reported from New Jersey that he saw — and heard — the object pass by. “It was making almost a hissing noise as it flew brightly overhead,” he wrote. “I saw it around 7:55 p.m. EDT.” Many others too have made similar observation about the so called meteor.
