Possible Northern California Meteor Fireball 30APR2011...

Email From:

Toni Chiapelli-N CAL:

I went online this morning to research the fireball meteorite and found your inquiry asking for more information. I live in San Anselmo, CA just north of San Francisco. At approximately 10pm I witnessed a huge fireball meteorite/asteroid rip across the sky in a firery orange display. I also noticed soft billowy tree or feather-like formations that were not clouds but rather had more of an etheric quality. After some online research, I discovered that we had a geomagnetic storm last night.
