Saw this tonight! I am in the Florida panhandle though. It was the biggest I had ever seen, and bright green, direction was almost straight into the Gulf. It was around 8:40 pm, I was traveling west on US Hwy 98, towards Destin having just left Panama city beach. It started low in the sky, bright green and ended in a fireball in what seemed like the gulf. I hope this helps you.

Guest800 (guest): I live between Garrison and Nacogdoches Texas. Last night (January 11, 2011)when I was standing on my front porch I witnessed a green "falling star". I was standing facing east when the "star" appeared. It was burning green with sparkles falling from it much like that of a single firework. It burned for just a brief time as it fell and disappeared behind the treeline. From my point of view,the star looked like it fell from top to bottom in the eastern sky

Guest307 (guest): I saw this same "bolide" or meteor as well. I was in my car traveling east on Hwy 154 between Quitman and Gilmer, Tx. It flashed through the sky from north to south in a downward angle until it disappeared in the horizon of trees. I was at the top a hill (Kelsey Hill) when I saw it. My radio clock said 8:47 (pm), and I immediately called my dad to ask him what it could have been. It first appeared orangish-yellow (firey) and quickly changed to a bright green color until it dipped into the horizon. 
It was in the lower northeastern sky from my reference, and it never crossed over HWY 154 before it dropped into the horizon of trees. It looked as if it was going to hit the Gilmer HS football stadium from where I was. It reminded me of a comet with a long streaking tail behind it........although the tail was a bright whitish-blue color, like a straight or semi-arched lightning bolt. It also reminded me of a colossal-sized green roman candle firework that got loose and hit the ground. Definitely a once in a lifetime sight!

California Meteor Reported to ELPALLSKY Jan 10 2011, 10:27 PM
Guest299 (guest): 1/10/11 San Clemente, CA at about 8:45 pm I saw a bright very fast object move through the sky. It had a trail like fire behind it. AMAZING I have never seen anything like this.
Jan 11 2011, 10:22 AM Guest599 (guest): 1/10/11 around 9:45 PM, we were driving down the Silver Creek hill in San Jose, CA. It was a HUGE round red/white ball with a long tail. It was way bigger than a regular "shooting star" in the sky. I'm surpised I haven't been able to find news reports on it.
Jan 11 2011, 10:46 AM Guest1 (guest): I live in Santa Cruz, CA and last night about 9:15ish I was out side walking to my car when my 8 year old son and I saw what looked like a bright green falling star. It went over the house and we watched it until it was obscured by the houses across the street. It was amazing. It sounds to me like a bolide meteor. Do you know how I can research the sighting? I would like to know if anyone else saw it. I noticed guest 559 from San Jose posted something similar. Santa Cruz is very near San Jose. I wonder if we saw the same thing?
