(NECN) - According to the Clay Center Observatory, there was a green meteor that was spotted in the sky Friday evening along the East Coast.

Ron Dantowitz at Clay Center Observatory says it appears to have occurred before 8 p.m., and the fact that it was reported to be green is interesting.

Dantowitz says he's unsure of the direction of travel, and says it could have been as small as a grapefruit or as large as a dining room table. He also says there is no guarantee that it hit the ground or even survived the atmosphere.
