Little Meteor Tonight

Bright, Blue-Green Meteor spotted

At approxiametly 8:45 pm, 1/19/2011, a bright blue-green streak of fast moving meteor was spotted from just south of Lake Ave on Kensington Blvd. This was unusual because it was very close to the ground and not in coincidence with a scheduled meteor shower. This small pebble of space rock, whose surface was being heated near 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit, contained a high degree of copper in order to achieve this large bright blue-green color just above our heads. Recent earth-quakes below us, blue-green meteors above us, and here I am stuck in Indiana along with all of you. (Kirtis Christensen - Fort Wayne, IN)

I saw it too. I guessed 8:57. It was over the rooftops in the south sky. It was the largest I have seen and it was definitely green! I jumped up and ran outside hoping to see more!

I saw the large meteor from my bedroom window in Michigan. It was an odd bluish green color and it was very large and moving fast. It was a beautiful sight!
