Angela R.-Middleton, Nova Scotia:
Saw a bright green fireball towards the Bay of Fundy, near Middleton Nova Scotia. It lasted maybe 3-5 seconds, was bright white at first then flared out in a bright green ball of fire.

Brian W.-Cutler, ME:
I too saw the meteor reported over Fundy Bay Sept 9 2011 from the Cutler Maine coast. I was on the deck marveling at the waves from passing storm Katia under the nearly full moonlight when I observed the meteor passing to the south west basically opposite the transatlantic route for aircraft. It was an intense green color and large in size compared to any other celestial objects I have ever witnessed. The time coincides with your mark. An exciting and marvelous sight indeed especially in conjunction with the crashing surf. I am glad to see someone else saw this rare spectacle. I did not hear any audible noise from this object but it certainly would have been drowned out by the surf.
