Dimmesdale sees the meteor form an "A." He takes this to mean that he should wear an "A" too.

The sexton thinks it stands for "Angel," since Governor Winthrop died that night.
The light of the meteor also reveals Roger Chillingworth observing the three (Hester, Pearl, and Dimmesdale) on the scaffold.
