Mysterious fireball spotted off New Jersey shore

The coast guard dispatched cutters and helicopters, but found nothing. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has no knowledge of missing planes.

A rare Aurigid meteor shower took place that day. The earth crossed the dust trail of comet Kiess. But the peak of that meteor shower was during the morning hours and was only observable on the west coast.
