All across Connecticut and other New England states, people are reporting seeing something bright streak across the sky during the early evening hours of Sunday, Jan. 12.

The American Meteor Society is investigating reports from this evening. Multiple sightings took place in Connecticut, including three reports from Canton.

One person named A.F. reported seeing something while on Lawton Road in Canton. The observer wrote on the AMS website and said: 

"This was a huge fire ball. Expected to hear a boom and hear fire alarms as it seemed so close! Never have we seen anything like this!"

Did you see something in the sky tonight? What did it look like?
