I Saw It. Did You?

I thought it was a roman candle at first but then thought about it when it disappeared. It was going sideways, I was in the middle of nowhere in Georgia on I-75, it's a little chilly, and it had no "company." Then my scientific mind set in and said - that meteor was full of copper - bright green."

ATLANTA (WXIA) – Dozens of reports of a fireball crossing the sky emerged Monday evening across 12 eastern states, from as far north as the Great Lakes states and extending as far south as Georgia.

As of 11:00 Monday night, the American Meteor Society said they had received nearly 200 reports of one or more meteors crossing the skies at about 6:20 p.m. Monday.

The reports came from Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The five reports from Georgia included one each in Rossville, Statesboro, Homer, Doraville and Alpharetta.

Most of the reports said the fireball was a greenish-to-white color as it crossed the sky.

11Alive's Greensboro sister station WFMY received a number of reports from viewers in their area.

No reports have been received indicating the meteor hit the ground.

Re: I Saw It. Did You?

Are you East Coast nik? The first thing I did was see if there were clouds - then it would have to have been fireworks. Clear and 3/4 moon so that helped convince me.

Re: I Saw It. Did You?

They just showed this on the morning news here in Los Angeles. How strange and beautiful. How cool that you actually saw it first hand.

No I'm not on the coast. A friend of mine posted on Twitter about it so I went out to see it. But like I said it was raining so I couldn't see shit.

Re: I Saw It. Did You?

Seen something like this two times. First time was about 2 years ago, second time was about a month ago. One of those, wow moments, that makes life just a little more beautiful.
