Poland -
29NOV2012 Lukasz RACIBORZ, POLAND 17:50:00 6 sec facing SSE, direction Left to right (the meteor bearing was SW) no sound, bright white, some green and little blue like car headlights at 200m 3-4 fragments fall of during flight it look like going pretty slow (never seen a meteor before though). Its flight path was very flat, almost horizontal. It flew for 6 sek and then suddenly disappeared (maybe hidden behing clouds) Thank you Lukasz!
