Did anybody else see a trail of what looked like a hundred very small meteors followed by about 5 to 7 larger ones moving from just east of the small dipper headed eastward at about 11:30 central time on 5/24/19?!!! They must have passed and not have fallen into the atmosphere because there were no colors or any changes in direction, just white points of light moving faster than typical satellites do and remained in the sky in the same direction for as long as I could continue to track them, about 10-15 seconds, and then they were gone from sight. The smaller ones looked like what an asteroid might look like if it had broken up into hundreds of pieces and formed into a band with some height and much length to it. It reminded me of the comet S/L 9 that smashed into Jupiter back in July of 1994. I just wish that I could have pointed my scope at it or have gotten a picture of it. I have never seen anything like this before, and I have been looking at the night sky for 45 years now. If I hadn't seen it for myself, I'd have had a hard time believing someone else. We get very dark skies here 50 miles south of Duluth MN. Bye for now, must go outside for it is time to observe now.
