At 9:46 p.m., Vahalia tweeted:
Did anyone else see the bright flash in the sky over the Seaport area?
And the local Twitterati responded:
I saw the light from West Roxbury, east towards the city, very bright and at a downward 25 degree angle.
I saw it too, more like a 85 degree angle for me and it was a green hue!
Saw the same. at the Sox game. what was that? I saw green streak. Thought it was a shooting star it wasn't. Fireworks?
This is how Cloverfield starts.
Most reports suggest a meteor, sighted NW to SE from ME to Long Island!
