Katy, Texas Meteor 30OCT2011

Katy, Texas Meteor 8:45 PM CST 30OCT2011
All, Out walking the dog in Katy Texas, near Highway 99 and Fry Road intersection, and saw a bright blue meteor streak lasting about 2 seconds. It came from the east heading due west. Much brighter than Vega/Altair or even the planets. The center of the bright blue area was greater in diameter than the streaked path by a factor of 3X to 4X and the brightness shot along in a tear drop shape /elongated along the path. Also there was a orange-ish yellow color surrounding the bright blue area. Have seen the Perseid’s and Gemineid’s many times- but this was one of was the brightest individual’s I’ve ever seen.-Ron Minks  Thank you Ron!
