Fireball Reported Along Atlantic Coast - March 30th 2009, 11:37 PM

(Newser) – Residents along the mid-Atlantic coast spotted a huge fireball last night—likely a meteor—followed by an explosion and a loud noise minutes later, the Virginian-Pilot reports. “This brilliant green meteor was probably two or three times brighter than the moon,” says one amateur astronomer who spotted the flash. “Then it turned orange with a white core and disappeared.” A loud, low frequency noise shook houses in Norfolk and Virginia Beach soon thereafter. Most reports put the blast and the noise at 9:50pm, but one man said he spotted a flash of light at 2:30am. The explosions indicate the meteor entered deep into the atmosphere, says an astronomy expert, making it likely that pieces fell to Earth.
I heard about this on the radio this morning. I also heard people talk about seeing it and hearing it today at school. I heard nothing and saw nothing unusual.

Brilliant green meteor? The Day of the Triffids anyone? If people start going blind then we know what happened.
