Reports of a meteor sighting over New York blazed across social media Friday night.  While the sighting was real, several of the photos floating around on social media appear to be hoaxes.




Video

This video was posted within the last hour on YouTube - again there is some question as to its validity.

A home security camera in Maryland caught the fireball streak across the sky.

This video comes from the Hopkins Automotive Group in Delaware

 

 

PHOTOS

This photo shared on Facebook by photographer, Bill Kim, shows the meteor off the coast of New Jersey.

This photo is alleged to be an impact - the reported impact zone is near the Maryland-Delaware border.
