Portland: Imagine being a police officer on patrolling duty and catching something out of the ordinary on the dashcam?

This is exactly what happened with these two police officers, who were on patrolling duty on the streets of Portland, Maine, in the early hours of the morning, when they caught a spectacular spectacle in the midnight sky.

Sergeant Tim Farris was driving when a meteor streaked across the sky. His fellow officer, Graham Hults couldn’t keep his amazement to himself.

In the dashcam video, that they shared, they can even be heard exclaiming in surprise. The meteor, according to reports, made its appearance all over the North American east coast.

According to the American Meteor Society, over 350 reports about the meteor were reported from Quebec to New Jersey.
