Location: Baltimore County, MD
Shape: Light
Duration:seconds
Blue ball of light flashed across the sky in Northwestern Baltimore County, Maryland.

I was driving at approximately 9:00 pm on Rt. 30 North towards Hanover, PA, with my 3 children. Unfortunately, they did not see it. I was on a stretch of the road where there are no street lights, so it was pretty dark in the sky, as there were not many stars shining either. Anyway, as I was driving, I noticed a blue colored ball shaped light, or object, flash across the sky out of the passenger side of the windshield. It was going north, just like me. It was so fast. There was no trail behind it, so I know it was not a shooting star, or anything like that. Especially since there were not many stars out that night. Also, there were no cars in front of me, or behind me; and no cars coming towards me from the opposite direction. I had never seen anything like that before.

((NUFORC Note: We have spoken with this witness, and she sounds quite sincere to us. She reported a similar experience for February 23, 2002, from Pikesville, MD. PD))

((FOLLOW-UP REPORT FROM SAME WITNESS))

Blue ball of light flashed across the sky in Northwestern Baltimore County, Maryland.

I was driving on 795 South, at approximately 9:30 pm. The stretch of 795 that I was on at the time is very well lit, since I was near the merge with 695 (the Baltimore Beltway). In a North to South direction in the sky, there was a ball of light that was greenish blue in color, almost turquoise. It flashed across the sky in the matter of a second. There was no trail behind it. I had seen something similar on 2/13/02, which I also reported on this site. This time, my daughter (who is 13) saw it too.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor. Please see other reports. PD))
