VERY bright green meteor Friday night
Posted 28 September 2013 - 12:45 PM
I was observing from a dark site under a very clear sky in north-central Kentucky, when the sky suddenly turned green. When I turned to the northeast, I saw this VERY bright meteor streaking across Perseus, coming from the general direction of southern Pegasus.
It flickered several times, though I saw no fragments separate from the meteor. It lasted about four seconds, and the train was visible for around 45 seconds.
Brightest meteor I recall since the 1966 Leonids. I was deep-sky observing by myself, but my jaw dropped at the site, and I could only say "WOW!" out loud.
It's been reported by hundreds of others of course. I missed the morning meteor that had occurred the previous day over Indiana.
Lucky and glad I was out there!
