Anita M.-South FL:
Hi,My husband and I had just arrived on Sanibel Island, FL and were headed down Northwest down Sanibel Captiva Road when we saw out of the car window and to our left a HUGE shooting star. It was traveling along side of us and going in the same direction we were. It was about 11:00 PM. I had never seen such a large shooting star! It had no color but was bright white.
Hope that helps,
Anita M     thank you Anita! Others???
