• Three fireball events were reported from parts of the U.S. and Canada on Monday 
  • A mysterious "boom" was reported last week across Central New York
  • Footage of the third event also captured a loud boom similar to last week's event

People in New York once again got to witness a bright fireball event. This time, there were reportedly three events that happened an hour apart from each other.

On Dec. 3, a mysterious boom caught the attention of many people across Central New York in the middle of the day. On Monday, New Yorkers had another glimpse of such an event, with over a hundred people reporting sightings.

There were three events related to the Monday night sightings, CNY Central reported. The first event came about 7:31 p.m. EST and it was reported from parts of the U.S. and Canada, including New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Ontario and Québec.

In a dashcam footage shared with the American Meteor Society (AMS), a meteor can actually be seen crossing the night sky.

Just an hour later, another fireball event occurred and there were 28 reports of it from New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Ontario.

At 9:21 p.m. EST, there was another report of a fireball sighting. A video shared by the witness from Oswego County, N.Y., showed the surroundings suddenly growing bright in a flash followed by a loud booming sound.

No more details are available about Monday night's events. According to the AMS, "several thousand" meteors with a fireball magnitude happen in the Earth's atmosphere every day. It's just that most of them are left unnoticed because they either happen during the day, in uninhabited regions, or in the middle of the night when not a lot of people are out to witness them.

Sometimes, fireballs even appear in different colors depending on the dominant composition of the object. For instance, an object that's high in nickel may appear green while another one that's high in sodium may appear bright yellow.

Organizations such as the AMS encourage people who spot them to report the event with "as many details as possible." This will make it easier to determine the actual trajectory of the object and learn more about it.
