Colour Out of ... The Washington Post?

The Washington Post of 11 May 2010 reports a meteor streak ...

Meteor spotted in Gaithersburg, MD

Early-morning commuters in Maryland - and as far away as Pittsburgh and Massachusetts - were startled by a spectacular meteor that crossed the sky in the pre-dawn darkness, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Dawn Teagle Dobbs spotted the fireball as she drove south on Interstate 270 near Gaithersburg at 4:47 a.m. "At first I thought it was a shooting star, but it was huge and bright green with a tail," she wrote in a post to The Baltimore Sun's Weather Blog.

Similar reports - - from all across Central Maryland and the Eastern Shore, and as far off as Ashburn, Va., Pittsburgh, Greencastle and Gettysburg, Pa., and New Jersey and central Massachusetts.
