Michael Virga was on patrol early Sunday when his vehicle dashcam captured footage of a fireball at 3:09 a.m.

Police dashcam has captured a dazzling fireball brightening up the night sky in New Jersey with a lime green light. He told NJ.com that this bright meteor took him into surprise, "I just saw a little blip".

At first he wasn't sure he captured it until he checked his official dashcam later.

The reports on November 24 included nine from the central and southern parts of New Jersey, including Trenton, Voorhees, Vineland, Ocean City and Stone Harbor, according to a log on the American Meteor Society website. The event was confirmed by the American Meteor Society (AMS) who received numerous reports along the east coast for this event.

Explaining the event, Virga said the fireball emerged from the skies and disappeared behind the trees in a matter of few seconds. AMS states a fireball is another term for a very bright meteor or about the same brightness of the planet Venus as seen in the morning or evening sky.

"The fireball was seen primarily from Pennsylvania but was also seen from New York, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Delaware, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, West Virginia, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Washington, DC", it stated.
