If you saw a bright light blazing across the sky early Saturday and thought you might be going crazy, you're not, and you're not alone.

Dozens of witnesses across the state and the region reported seeing what astronomers are calling a fragmenting meteoric fireball. Witnesses saw the fireball as early as 12:18 a.m. and as late as 1 a.m., with the majority of the area sightings coming at about 12:30 a.m. Some of the witnesses also reported hearing delayed booms.

    I saw it in Frederick, greenish ball of fire, it appeared right after a small popping sound that alerted my attention.
