Chris V.-Scottsdale, AZ:
I just saw star exactly how you describe I was at my parents house they live in north scottsdale buy scottsdale airport scottsdale arizona what time was around 9:48pm. Was green with maybe a hint of blue in the center surrounded by an orange halo I was facing west maybe a little northwest the direction it was traveling was south to north it started hi in the atmosphere and died about 3 quarters away from horizon it was only the second shooting star that was that big that I have seen the other 1 was all orange around the beginning of the summer this year as for the size I'm not an astronomer but it was huge if they say most shooting stars are the size of pebbles I would say this was the size of a 747 but again I am not an astronomer I saw it and I searched it online and saw your website and sent you an email I hope this helps indeed! Thank you Chris
