"It was dispatched as a fireball, out over the ocean, going into the ocean," Deputy Chief Tim Cook of the Toms River, N.J., Fire Department told The Post.

The Federal Aviation Administration reportedly had no idea what the object was. Coast Guard cutters and helicopters were dispatched, but found nothing, The Post said.

Experts said a rare meteor shower might have been the cause.
