Kentucky Meteor Fireball 22OCT2011

Email From
Gary D.-Lexington, KY:
Very bright, almost like a magnesium flame. Roughly shaped like a truncated
triangle with narrow part in the front. Some trailing streak. Appeared to be
very low to ground or moving more perpendicular towards ground than would
have expected of meteors.
Almost appeared to "crash" nearby and we even thought to look for a crash
site.
We were in car in wooded residential area traveling WNW and the streak was
moving nearly exactly from the east to the west so it came into view as it
passed over car and appeared as if it would impact. It was lost from view as
it seemed to pass though the trees and was lost from sight. My front seat
passenger and I both reacted out loud as though we'd seen a crashing burning
object.
