Just saw a big ol' green shooting star or something over Arlington, VA / DC, looked like a huge flare or fireball or something #dcmeteor— michi (@michiforjoy) March 22, 2013
Did anyone else just see a meteor cross the sky over DC? Missed it with my camera. Pretty crazy and green. #dcmeteor— Anthony J. Agby Jr. (@agbyaj) March 22, 2013
