I saw a large metor located in the Eastern sky falling to the North. It had a large trailing tail and white in color. It seemed to last for a good 8 to 10 seconds before it burned out. many thanks John & Deirdre!
Kim B.-Galion, OH...26JUL2011 9:44pm EDT:While searching the west sky for comet Elenin, in leo...at around 9:45pm, a very bright fireball lite up the sky, entering in through the big dipper, streaking passed Regulus, falling at the SW horizon.

Linda S.- Gilmer, TX...24JUL2011 9:20pm CDT:I was in the parking lot of our local Wal-mart and saw a big, bright, object falling from the sky. I've seen falling stars before, but this appeared to be VERY close, because it was so big. It fell straight down, in a brilliant white light that appeared to burn out before it hit the ground. Just thought I would share this with you. thank you Linda!

Corky C., Sabine E., and Lisa S.-Truckee, CAOn Saturday July 23, 2011, 3 of us were sitting outside on our deck looking up at the Milky Way and all the other objects in the night sky. Sometime around 11:30 pm we all saw a very bright meteorite (fireball if you will), traveling from what appeared to be northwest horizon to the southeast horizon, in the northern sky (coming from near the Big Dipper). Our location is Truckee, California, elevation 5,912 feet, and the weather conditions that night were extremely clear, with no wind, smoke or anything else to affect the clear sky. The object made a very bright white trail behind it, and didn't explode like other fireballs (maybe space junk, huh?) that we've seen. It was very spectacular! We hope this helps in your research. Corky, Sabine, and Lisa, excellent report! Our thanks.
