Brian C.-Warren Ohio 8:00pm CDT:
I was out tonight in Warren Ohio facing North and saw a meteor descending what appeared to be North East towards Cortland Ohio.  It exploded in a red/ white flash with what appeared to be streamers going in many different directions.  This occurred in about thirty seconds time, I did not hear anything.  The explosion was brighter than the streamer coming in.  I do not know if anything made it to the ground.     thanks Brian!

Cheryl-Toledo, OH:
My husband and I also saw this. We were on our front porch, which faces north northwest, in Toledo, Ohio. It was a few minutes past 8:00 p.m. We were standing looking at the stars, which is something that we frequently do, and all of a sudden, coming right over our house, straight above us, came this fireball. We both stood there in awe at this amazing sight. It was traveling toward the north northwest. It broke up into what looked like three fragments and seemed to "burn out" before it went below the tree line. I started to giggle because I couldn't believe that we were so lucky to see this incredible sight.      thank you Cheryl!
