Southern California Meteor Fireball 02DEC2011

Email From:
Deanne S.-Fountain Valley, CA:
At just-past-6 pm local (maybe 6:08), I was driving into my neighborhood (eastward) and saw a bright bluish-white trail begin on the sky from left to right (north to south).  It at first appeared to me to be the flame from the engine of a single-engine military fighter aircraft but then as it elongated, I realized it was something coming in to the earth's atmospheres.  It began to break apart, I assume, as I saw a few bits come away and quickly disintegrate.  Finally as it reached the right side of my windshield it fizzled out.  Very neat, I've never seen anything like it before.  Thanks for the heads up Deanne!! Others who saw this please email your description to wxtx01@gmail.com Thank You!

Kelly M.-Northern MI:
I actually saw one around 9-10 pm in northern Michigan, it looked like one hit the ground but not sure I haven't heard any news?

Kathryn M.-London Ontario, Canada:
at about 9:15pm (estimate - I was driving) I saw what looked like a comet with a greenish hue flash through the sky to the North.
I can't find anything on line about it either.

Another North Carolina Meteor Fireball 02DEC2011

Email From:
Bruce H.-Bath, NC-~4:00pm EST:
Just saw something fall out of sky. I'm near Bath N.C. looking South. Long streak of light then fizzeled out above tree line  Thanks for the heads up Bruce...OTHERS SEE THIS EVENT? Email wxtx01@gmail.com with your reports. THANK YOU!

Diane H.-Darlington, SC:
I saw what my daughter & I think was a shooting star. Well something falling from the sky.
It was tonight 12/2/11 around 6-6:30pm here in Darlington, SC. Maybe East/South east. But it was bright as a white LED light with sparlles that fizzled out on the way out. It was almost horizontal but slightly going down. Way too high for fireworks & surely not a plane. I wonder what it was?

Stacey M.-Wake Forest, NC:
Hello! Got to your blog from Google after seeing a large fiery object moving quickly across the sky. It was exactly how I pictured Haley's comet back when I was a child. It had a long trail or tail.  I actually thought for a moment "this is the end," since I've never seen anything like it. It was a little after 6pm here in Wake Forest, NC; I had just finished a jog.

Ben H.-Raleigh, NC:
I saw your posting on a website and Im wondering if we saw the same thing. I was heading south into Raleigh about 6:00pm tonight when I saw a bright meteor go across the sky that seemed to travel from northeast to southwest. It obviously broke apart and disintegrated and you could see that happen really well from where I was sitting in my car.

Paula B.-Raleigh, NC:
I saw the same thing described by Ben H. in Raleigh. I am in Raleigh, was travelling south just after 6:00 when I saw the “fireball”. Any word on what it was?
 
Maari C.-Unknown Location:
I saw this too. Last night 12-2 around 6:15ish. It was a bright ball of light, like a close-up shooting star. I could see it breaking apart with little bits burning off the back as it fell. I thought for sure it would hit the ground. It seemed  so close. I kept waiting to hear it hit the ground somewhere. It seemed like the dogs in our neighborhood started barking around the same time. It was really cool. I've never seen something like that.

"Arizona Dewdrop"-Columbia, SC:
around 6pm last night I saw a bright white shooting star. Larger than any I've ever seen. It also had a tail that was thick and white, but not as bright as the star itself. It seemed to travel the. Entire length of the sky than fizzeled.  What was it?

Possible BC Canada Meteor Fireball 02DEC2011

Email From:
Shea D.-Vancouver British Columbia, Canada:

Hi
Was sitting outside on my balcony last night which faces north, about 1:30am chatting on the phone with a friend and saw a large light move slowly across the sky eastwards. It was big and slow, I looked at the road and saw a street light and was describing to my friend that it was the colour of the street lamp (yellow-ish) and nearly the same size but moving quite slowly, I tried to go get my camera after realizing how slow it was moving but missed it, operator failure We get lots of sea planes, planes and helicopters in the sky but this was big and slow! Stranger yet, I continued talking and another light caught my eye, suddenly where I originally spotted it, same size and moving the same direction.
Wonder what it could've been?
Vancouver, BC

Latest Fireball Reports From The ELPALLSKY CHATBOX 02DEC2011

Dec 1 2011, 11:05 AM Guest383 (guest):  
Carly. Berkeley, CA (west). 8am. something large with a long smoke trail falling out of sky this morning around 8am? I wasn't alone when I saw it so I know I am not going crazy... It basically looked like a jet with a gorgeous smoke trail in the sunrise. My cousin and I were admiring the beauty and then stopped in the middle of the street when we realized, "Wait! That is going straight DOWN...Not straight ACROSS the sky!" We were in West Berkeley looking toward the south/south west.  Thank you Carly!

Phil M.-Wilmington, NC-06:08 A.M. EST:
Large glowing fireball, aprox 2 seconds, moving from NE to SW across the sky. Yellow, white then green in color with increasing sparks near the end then disappearing with a slight flash. Witnessed with a friend after our early morning run. I have seen “shooting stars”, this was much larger and with intense color.Thanks,

Kerry B.-Clayton, NC-06:08 A.M. EST:
Approx ½ in in diameter. White fireball with red perimeter. Observed dropping from about 120 deg above horizon to 50 deg when lost in treeline. Moving on a S/SW direction viewed from 35.652703 -78.400872. Approx 2 second view. Strong long tail that immediately disappeared. Maintained diameter from where viewed consistent with rapid altitude drop vs shooting across (away) the sky. KB – Clayton NC

Christy H.-Shelby, NC:
My husband and coworkers also saw this on the way in to work (approx. 6:10 am./ Dec. 2.) They were traveling on hwy.74 in from Shelby, NC toward neighboring Kings Mountain, NC. They described it as bright with changing colors, green orange, and blue.  Duration was estimated 4-5 secs. and pretty awesome because so many saw it.  Said it looked as if it streaked and then descended quickly.
Gayle-Grandfather Mountain, NC:
I saw something fall out of the sky at approximately 6:10 this morning.  I live near Grandfather Mountain.  It was blue/green and as it disappeared, it has gold/yellow sparks trailing it.  Do you know what it was???? December 2nd, 6:08am, Grandfather Mountain area.
Blue/green ball, I saw it for about 3-4 seconds, as it disappeared, it has gold/yellow sparks coming from the back end.
Thanks

Pablo R.-Lillington, NC:
I witnessed this sighting on my way to work while I was driving south on NC210 in Lillington NC at 06:08 AM. It appeared to be large in diameter (between baseball and basketball).  It was big with a large bright white with green  tail and lasted around 5 seconds.  I saw it out of my driver side window and it was parallel to the top of my car; seemed like if I was driving along side of it.  It startled me because it was so close, possibly landed in my area; it was huge.

Jan R.-Winston Salem, NC:
I also saw what I guess to be a fireball Dec. 2, 2011 around 6:15 in the a.m. It shot across highway 52 and over the treetops, still flaming - yellowy-green. My first close encounter!
