Thomas strong at 12:45 on my way home from work I saw a larg bright light come flying down just outside of Pittsburgh as it hit our atmosphere the light had exploded as it streaked off... Definitely the biggest one I have ever seen

About 12:45am I saw it too. It was greenish color. Absolutely Amazing!

Saw something very similar in Central NY, Syracuse area tonight, have been online trying to figure it out. Fits this description-- brightest I've ever seen, seemed to be trailing almost like fireworks (but clearly not that), then just sort of disappeared. Amazing sight.

I saw it at 9:30 pm or thereabouts.

So glad everyone posted. I thought I was seeing things - probably one of the coolest things I have seen! It was lime green for me with a bright white tail.

We live in Petersburg, WV .. we didnt actually see it but felt the percussion of the impact and a gust of wind come through our windows .. very freaky as it shook our apartment and people felt it over 5 miles away from where we live ..

I literally looked up over Carrier Library at James Madison Univ. in Harrisonburg, VA last Wednesday night (Thurs. morning, I guess) at about 12:30am just in time to see the beauty drop. Just now googled it, and cool to see I wasn't the only one who caught it. It was something else. God is crazy!
