For any meteorite hunters in the U.S
I saw&made the proper report's for at least six meteors one of which was a big fireball just after sunset with a blue corona at the end. The five or more previous were daytime one's that caught my eye because, the trajectory was so extreme I thought a jet was crashing. Apparently, my area in Florida has been a hotbed of activity lately. BlueScarlet on Google+ or Scarlet4evermoore@Gmail
