WASHINGTON — A bright meteor was seen shooting through the sky Tuesday night and a camera located on the Washington Monument captured its movement.
The meteor moved from west to east over West Virginia Tuesday at 9:27 p.m., reports NASA’s Meteor Watch. It was seen across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland, the D.C. monument spotted it, too.
In a city filled with bright lights, the monument camera captures the meteor in the top right portion of the screen. NASA notes that the bright object moving toward the left side of the screen is an airplane.
