Dozens of reports of a fireball crossing the sky emerged Monday evening across 14 eastern states, from as far north as the Great Lakes states and extending as far south as Georgia and Alabama.

As of 4 p.m. Tuesday, the American Meteor Society said they had received nearly 400 reports of one or more meteors crossing the skies at about 6:20 p.m. Monday.

The reports came from Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The six reports from Georgia included one each in Rossville, Statesboro, Homer, Doraville, Alpharetta and Atlanta.

Most of the reports said the fireball was a greenish-to-white color as it crossed the sky.
