Balltimore, Maryland Greenish Emerald Streak Shooting 1:35-11:40 tonight (4/13/2011)
I live in Balltimore, Maryland and around 11:35-11:40 tonight (4/13/2011) I was getting off the 295 exit to get onto 695 going towards Towson I noticed a greenish (emerald color) streak shooting across the sky. Did I really see a comet? I wanted to know if you know of any scheduled comets coming in view of our area around this time and if anyone else as reported seeing something similar tonight in the sky? Thanks, Romelle B.  Sorry no comets scheduled this week.

New Jersey Meteor 11:45 pm 13APR2011
I just saw a meteor at 1145 pm in NJ 4/13/2011 looked huge like a white ball with a trail of neon blue and green trail of flames following it as it dropped straight down from the sky.First time I have ever seen anything like that. It was amazing!!! -mamayamaha

Greenbelt, Maryland 11:30 pm 13APR2011
I saw a brief, bright white light not long after 11:30 pm, above Greenbelt, Maryland (intersection of Washington Beltway/495/95 and Baltimore-Washington Parkway/295). It was in the northeastern sky and moving from southeast to northwest. The northwest side of it looked like a bright burst of white light. This was followed on the southeast by a white tail. Overall, it followed a smooth arc, as I would have expected, but it made an erratic jagged dip down, across, and back up before it disappeared. (It looked celestial to me, but we do get a lot of varied aircraft here because we are near both Washington, DC, and NASA.)

Independence Ohio Meteor ~11:42 April 13, 2011
As I was driving home this evening I spotted a meteorite.
I was traveling eastbound on Pleasant Valley Road and noticed a blue-white streak seemingly traveling north to south in the south / southeast sky.
It was approximately 11:42 EST. I was in Independence Ohio and looking south. It was bright enough to take my attention off the road. Hank D.

Henrietta, NY April 13, 2011

I saw a meteor last night on my way home around 11:40 at night. It was in the eastern sky at an angle of around 60 degrees traveling south. It was a brilliant green with a spectacle of incinerating debris ripping off of it. It was the third I’ve ever seen, and the first at night. Very curious as to how far it made it before ending it journey. Seamed way to high to have ended in NY. Judging by its path I would say south PA or MD.

I saw a bright green fire ball outside my window at around 11:45 PM EST. It was very low in the sky and falling fast, seems like it could have possibly landed near by.
