At least one North Sea resident is among the hundreds of people on the East Coast who reported seeing a meteor-like flash of light shortly before 8 p.m.
From Boston to the Carolinas on Friday night, there were hundreds of unconfirmed reports on Twitter and other social media outlets of a meteor-like object.
Similar reports were also made across the East End.
Eileen Szymczak Moore Sayre reported on North Fork Patch's Facebook page she saw it in Orient while waiting for the ferry. And Stacy Marshall Paetzel said she saw it from her living room in Cutchogue.
She said, "I wasn't even looking out the window it was that bright!"
She said, "It was beautiful."
Patch readers from East Hampton also said they saw the flash of light.
A meteor estimated to be about 50 feet wide and weighing more than 10,000 tons exploded over central Russia last month, injuring hundreds with a shockwave that blew out windows and damaged structures across a wide area.
No injuries, or other material impacts were reported Friday night.
