14MAR2013 Steve Pasternak Saline, Michigan 0620 EST 3-4 seconds I'm facing N, meteor travel was W to E Bright white, no sound much brighter than Venus, less than full moon yes, short tail of burning fragments trajectory more horizontal. Brightness caught my peripheral vision from due West then it travelled to approx. due North, noticed lots of fragmentation just before it disappeared. Awesome!

Looked like lightning out of the corner of my eye while driving. Didn't see fragmentation.  I saw the initial flash out of the corner of my eye Bright flash got my attention, then I looked out my window and saw the fading trail.  Glad to see others reported it, so I'm not hallucinating on my morning commute!
