PORTLAND, ME (WCMH) – No, it wasn’t a speeding UFO, but a police officer in Maine did catch an amazing fireball on video.
According to the Portland Maine Police Department, Sgt. Farris was on duty looking for speeding vehicles when his dash camera caught the fireball on video.
“Let’s hope the visitors are friendly. They could just be some of Stephen King’s friends on there way to visit him. Whomever they are I’m sure we could win them over with a whoopie pie,” the police department wrote on their wall.
The American Meteor Society says at least 140 people from Canada to Massachusetts also reported seeing the fireball, which happened just before 1am, Tuesday.WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON RIGHT NOW:
