SOCAL Dusk Meteor Fireball 28AUG2011

Craig E.-San Diego, CA:
Shortly after sunset 8/28/2011 at about 19:42 PST I witnessed a green meteorite in the sky looking West from downtown San Diego on the 26th floor of a building with unobstructed views. This was a bright green shooting star and didn't leave a trail. It was about 45 degrees high and shot straight down (not side to side) lasting for about a second, vanishing roughly 15-20 degrees above the horizon to the West of downtown San Diego.  It appeared to blink the moment before disappearing!  This was the first one I've seen while it was still light out.
