Initial Meteor Sighting Reports-
16SEP2013 Lee Big Bear Lake, CA, USA 23:06:00 8-10 secs Noticed it at the zenith, traveling east by south east, quite quick Remarkably green, white tail, pulsing slightly on it's descent, guessing based on it's brightness and trajectory I would think it impacted at some point - it was still glowing brightly when it dropped below tree line / horizon I'd estimate 2x Venus Not that i saw The brightest meteor I've ever personally seen. Twas quite something.
16SEP2013 Edward Van Nuys, CA 23:18:00 2 Seconds before I lost sight North to South Greenish/White Streek, halfway down was a small burst Brighter than Venus but not brighter than moon. Looked like there was. Looked like it was heard straight towards ground. It was heading towards horizon. 8 inches off horizon.
16SEP2013 TESSA HALL LA VERNE, CALIFORNIA 11;10 PM 9 SECONDS NORTH GREEN WITH AN ORANGE TAIL MOON BUT SLIGHTLY BRIGHTER IT HAD A LONG TAIL THAT WAS ORANGE AND PURPLE WITH GIANT PARTICLES FALLING OFF THE END OF IT IT GREW SO MUCH LARGER WHEN IT CAME CLOSER TO THE EARTH, THEN WHEN IT WAS OUT OF OUR EYE SIGHT A MASSIVE WHITE FLASH HAPPENED, SO WE FEEL IT MIGHT HAVE HIT SOMETHING. WE ARE IN SO MUCH SHOCK AT THE LARGE SIZE IT GREW THE CLOSER IT CAME TO THE EARTH, AND IT LOOKED AS IF IT WAS SPINNING AS WELL.
16SEP2013 Jsciarp sedona, az 2320 mountain standard 4 seconds west yellow/orange. red flash half sun far away, dark, no fragmentation seen exploded, hit in ocean off California
16SEP2013 Michael Chapman Bullhead City, AZ USA 11:10pm AZ mountain time 3-4 sec. west blueish white with a large flash and flickering. A bit brighter than the moon. Broke apart than lost it behind the horizon. I didn't get a direct view at first but watched it disappear beyond horizon.
