It is said to have lasted only as long as three seconds but many in the Miami-Dade and Broward areas witnessed a "ball of light" in the sky over the weekend.

One of the editors of The Miami Herald, Jeff Kleinman, reported seeing the light when he was with his daughter at a local mall.

A similar light was seen over the San Francisco Bay area the day before.  Asteroid 2012 DA14 passed by the Earth last week.  In Russia a meteor exploded in the sky, causing injury to more than eleven hundred Russian citizens.

There is no word yet on what the fireball was.
