This report has been linked to the following event: Event 8052-2021
Observer
NameDaniel M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIn the 2010s, I was in Teaneck NJ, driving, and saw a similar situation where the object lit up the entire night time sky as if the night had become day, but instead of a blue sky, it skewed pure white for a second. This sighting last night didn't light up the sky in the same way, however, the fireball from last night lasted much longer and felt more dramatic in how it was breaking.
