As told in the meteorite community, it was a car - a meteorite that is brighter than Venus. This is a rather rare occurrence.
Its supposed trajectory ran from east to west, and a visible flight ended above North Carolina.
The appearance of the fireball occurred at the approximate peak of the Taurid meteor shower. This starfall is usually one of the weakest of the year.
