Observer
NameBrian Z
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI have a Degree in meteorology, and am confident of what myself and son saw. Brightest meteor I can recall seeing in my 42 years, one of the those once in lifetime, lasted long to watch it as we talked. We were out taking pictures of Jupiter and Saturn. Camera was aimed at Jupiter and the milky way if you can picture yourself looking through the camera on a tripod. Meteor started north west about 65degrees up in the sky. Meteor was on a down trajectory from north west to south southwest burned up about 15degrees above horizon. Bright green(nickel composition) color and then burned up, slight distant hiss and what sounded like distant thunder after.
