Huge fireball event with sonic booms in the NE US this morning of 5/17/16, as seen from Ontario-

As seen from police dashcam in Maine-

Any fireball event with over 100 reports to the International Meteor Organization/American Meteor Society's reporting system is considered a "huge" event.

Tonights event has 144 reports so far-

This is the 13th huge fireball event of 2016-

That ties the total amount for all of 2015-

This event also has 11.8% of respondents reporting a sonic boom, that is very high. A fireball with a sonic boom indicates a deeper penetrating object into the atmosphere.

We are on pace to have 28 fireballs for the year, which would be 33% more than the record year of 2014 with 21.

They are coming in more and more frequently, and deeper into the atmosphere, and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it, for cryin' in the sink
