I saw a green flame coming from a falling meteorite. I was heading east on Rt.20 in Northborough, Ma just over the Marlborough line at 6:46pm. It was falling towards the north and I have no idea how to judge distance, but it didn't seem far away. I'm guessing it fell in Northborough, West Boylston, or Berlin. Anyone have info or see it from another point to help triangulate it? It was very cool to see, and it got me interested in looking for more info online.--Chad--
Yes, I have seen the same green flame at 6:46pm today while driving south on Rt 287 at about the border between New York state and New Jersey. I had never seen such a large meteorite, and of that beautiful color. It has crossed the sky in fron of my car from my upper-left to my lower-right, so since I was driving south it means that the direction was roughly from north-west to south-east.I hope it helps.Great sight!Diana
Correction: the direction was north-east to south-west
i believe i saw the same event. I was driving south through Buckland, Ma on route 112 and saw a large streaming flash of green. It lit the sky up enough to see it's trail of smoke/debris nearly three quarters across. it traveled from SE to NW and i viewed it from the north. It seemed very close and i wondered whether it was a small plane coming down. it was brilliant!
I saw it in Summit NJ it was directly overhead moving from east to west almost exactly on line by the compass. I was surprised how few other people seemed to have witnessed it or at least reported it. Very cool, lot's of colors, and bright.
