A green fireball has been seen lighting up the skies over America, prompting speculations by ufologists.
The light appeared in the sky on Friday 25 August and was visible across several states.
The American Meteor Society stated that over 300 people had been in contact after witnessing the phenomenon.
“The fireball was seen primarily from Pennsylvania but was also seen from Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Massachusetts,” it said in a statement.
The AMS also stated that the green light ‘might not be a meteor’.
Ufologists have speculated that the colour and duration of the fireball meant it should not be dismissed as another meteor sighting, but could be treated as a UFO.
Other Twitter users even suggested it could be a missile from North Korea.
