Guest136 (guest) Kevin wrote: Got to see an awesome meteor this morning from Spokane, WA at about 0500 local. It lasted about 7 seconds and watched it into the horizon. By far the best I have ever seen or will ever see. Somebody has got to have video, perhaps a traffic cam on a decent hill. The sky was just beginning to show a hint of daybreak so likely better seen at Seattle or Vancover/BC  2 days ago I thought I saw a short/brief one at the same spot but I assumed it was just reflection of lights off my glasses and windshield, chilly outside. I will try to keep a camera at the ready tonight.
