    Sgt. Michael Virga of the Hamilton Township Police Department in New Jersey was on patrol near Atlantic City airport on December 2 when his dashcam caught this fireball streaking across the sky. The department released the video on December 7. The American Meteor Society recorded 133 reports of the fireball on that night from several states, including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland. The site’s director, Mike Hankey, told local media it was “most likely a cometary fireball.”
