Observer
NameWayne K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI work mid night shift as a police officer. I walk around the high school as a way to check the building as well as exercise. I see many meteors and I watch during predicted meteor showers. Once and a while I see a bright meteor and I make note of the time and direction. This night was very clear and the meteor was very distinct. It had a silver white ball shape with a green tail. It was silent and I did not hear a sonic boom or any signs of impact. It appeared to be due North from my position and fell nearly vertical to the ground with a slight Easterly tilt.
