RemarksI was pointing out Gemini which was at it's zenith when the fireball came out of Leo minor toward Gemini. It was also a power failure so many more stars were visible. My wife says she saw it as fat conical bullet shape that was red at the tip and followed by golden yellow and then a white tail. Awesome!
