According to a NASA spokesman, observers along the Virginia and North Carolina coasts, as well as the North Carolina Triangle, saw it in the sky just after 8 p.m.

Initial calculation of the fireball's trajectory from 48 reports estimates that it entered the atmosphere off the coast of Morehead City and traveled northeast before breaking up east of Ocracoke.
