RemarksWhile driving east, I saw the meteor and the trail very briefly. Since I was immediately south of our airport, I bright light moving downward certainly caught my attention. It was far brighter and its trail far wider than any I've ever seen before. And the hue was a beautiful green toward the yellow portion of the spectrum. No break up, no brilliant flash but extremely cool.
