A Portland police officer caught this fireball streaking across the sky at about 12:50 this morning. The American Meteor Society says there were hundreds of reports all over the Northeast.

According to the Portland Police Department;

You never know what you are going to see on duty. Sgt. Farris was looking for speeder's while parked in front of the central fire station and was able to observe some visitors "from away"....far away. The meteor (or alien spaceship) was caught on camera at approximately 0050 hours. Let's hope the visitors are friendly. They could just be some of Stephen King's friends on there way to visit him. Whom ever they are I'm sure we could win them over with a whoopie pie.

UPDATE: METEOR CAUGHT ON THE PORTSMOUTH WEBCAM
