Guest623 Forest VA (guest)Reports
My name is Mark Manley, Forest Va., huge fireball north to south on Jan 3 2011...
did anybody see the fireball traveling from north to south, over the western sky of Forest, VA. USA? It was about 730pm...
my first one ever...it was huge and seemed to only get brighter as it traveled south. AWESOME!!!...
where did this possibly land?
Comment From ELPALLSKY:
Mark, this fireball has the earmarks of being a Quadrantid Meteor. The shower was peaking at exactly the time you report your sighting. It's North to South direction of travel is also consistent with the radiant (apparent point of origin) in the constellation Quadrans. Click THIS LINK for more information and thanks for posting!
