Observer
NameJoseph M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis morning @ 4:10 am I saw a brilliant blue meteorite fly right over the front of me as I was traveling north on rte 154 about a half mile north of Haddam Meadows state park. It seemed like it was just barely over tree top height and was going to impact the ground. Just before it disappeared it sparked off a little red piece. There was a long white tail behind it as it streaked across the front windshield of my truck. It was really dark outside and only the slightest crescent of the moon was showing.There was no sound.
