E-mail From Rosie M.-Swansboro, NC...I was sitting on the dock facing ESE (Cassiopeia behind me) at about 9:30 Friday night and saw the biggest, brightest meteor I've ever seen (and I see a lot of them out here in this low light pollution, coastal area). It arced across the sky from right to left over 100 degrees of my field of vision, for about 8 seconds, with a clear, rounded orange leading edge and long white smoke trail. I could see the complete round shape on the back edge, visible even through the tail. I've never seen anything like it! Spectacular!  
thank you Rosie! Otis Redding would be proud :-)

E-mail From Sue F. in South Carolina...Last evening my friend and I were travelling home from the beach. We were traveling on I26 from Columbia, heading toward Greenville. We both were so delighted that we were seeing a shooting star. However, it did not fizzle-out like usual. The fireball did not seem to diminish in size and did not fizzle. It appeared to fall to the earth. We lost sight of it behind the trees. We wondered if it was actually a plane, but did not see any sign of an explosion on impact.   thanks sue!

Cathy In Traveler's Rest, SC Email's...April 6, 2011: At about 9:20 pm EDT my daughter observed a very large white light falling straight to the ground over Travelers Rest, SC in the southern direction.  At first, she thought it was an airplane because it was so large!  At the exact same time, a relative in TN posted to Facebook that she saw a large meteor.  Same one?!   looks like it Cathy...thank you for this important report!
