A greenish fireball was seen yesterday night from different towns in all corners of the island.

The meteor was spotted at around 7:05pm from San Juan, Isabela, Ponce, Arecibo, Rincón y Barceloneta, among other towns, said Eddie Irizarry, President of the Caribean Astronomy Society (SAC for its initials in Spanish).

"Many people described it as having a green tone to it, and being very bright," said Irizarry regarding the reports that the SAC had received about this fireball's sightings.

He added that, judging from the reports, "it must have been a big rock".
