RemarksBehind the explosion was a plane flying by. From my view, the plane was at the same height as the explosion. The plane itself was about as bright as a distance star. The plane flight path was across my path and parallel to the meteor path. The meteor had to be closer to me than the plane, and exploded somewhere between my altitude on the ground and the plane's altitude.
