Jean In Pasadena Writes...I was coming out of Home Depot tonight and saw a falling bright green object. Very firework or flare-like. Quite bright, but quite green also; more than just a green flow. The object was falling close to a perfect 45 degrees to the right from where I was looking. It was pretty much a clean straight line. It was falling reasonably fast, but not as fast as most shooting stars I've seen in my life so there was a good amount of time to observe (probably 1 second or a tad longer). I think someone seeing that would have thought it was part of a flare or firework or something, but having seen others in the past month or two, I figured it was a meteor. It diseappered approx 30 degrees or less above the horizon, before I would lose sight because of warehouses (it's kind of an industrial area, so not much high stuff around there.) That's all I can think about. If you have questions, pls let me know.
I created a map to show my position and the direction I was looking: (see below-click to enlarge)


Thank You Jean !!

Debbie T. In Alta Loma CA...I saw a fireball in the southern California sky around 8 pm.  It went from a fireball to a greenish color before disappearing.   It was travelling from the East to the West.  It was the brightest and longest (duration) meteorite that I have ever seen!  thank you Debbie!

Gordon Near Mojave, CA Writes...I was on the 14 freeway headed West, about 15 miles before Mojave. The object first appeared approx 40 degrees above the horizon, trveling left to right (South to North). It at first appeared as a stationary light, the began traversing the sky and growing in brightness. Finally (after a good second or so) flared and disappeared. My buddy that was with me saw it too, his first fireball! Gordon    thanks Gordon!

OKC Forward Scatter Radio Indicates Two Possibly Large Meteor Events...One Daytime Event...

by ELPALLSKY 05APR2011...
James Beauchamp of Oklahoma City, OK captured the following images on his forward scatter receiver April 1st, 2011. In the images, the burst of multi-colored data indicates increased radio signal reflections by fast moving objects, likely meteors. The April 1st hit is "the largest I've ever seen" says Beauchamp, an expert in his field. "This may have been a visible daylight event."
