Several meteors, including one described as a fireball, graced the region's skies Monday night.
Russ Baldwin, 57, of Henrico County was driving north on U.S. 1 just south of Ashland when a light shot across the sky, headed east, about 6:40 p.m.
"I saw a big fireball with a little tail of flame," said Baldwin, a computer programmer who was with his son Scott, 13. "As it passed over, there was a sudden flash, and it just disappeared."
