A fireball shot across Virginia and Maryland skies just before 10 p.m. July 28, according to eyewitness reports and NASA.

Experts say the object was likely a small piece of asteroid measuring about 18 inches in diameter and weighing approximately 200 pounds, according to a Facebook post from NASA’s Meteor Watch. At its brightest, the object was two times brighter than a full moon.
