Initial meteor Sighting Reports-
LisaGNZ Miller writes,
"About an hour ago; 7:30 p.m. EDT, 9-28-2013, Chickamauga, GA we viewed an apparent large meteor/fireball sighting; traveling west to east; Sparks were coming off and then burned out. Were there any other sightings of this?" Miller/Glenfield

Kristin wites,
"The green fire ball or whatever it was at about 735 on 9/28
I saw it with 2 adult witnesses, one a partial view. Also a child saw it at a birthday party we were all at. I tried to file a report but it wouldn't let me. Possibly because I am on a cell but I hope this gets to the right source.  The object looked like a green flame. Very bright. Super super fast. No sound. We all agree it was no plane and nothing any of us have ever seen before. It was so fast we barely had time to see it before it disappeared into the mountains. It took possibly 3-4 seconds to cross the horizon?" Kristin

Saw this same fireball had a great view of the entire trail of it. Did not note the time but it was just starting to get dark so around 7:30

My son said hey look at that UFO I said no that's a meteorite it come into view. My porch faces west and it came from the northern post on my porch and went across my house to the south eastren corner and broke up into a few other pieces which were leaving their own trails. Just a few seconds after it broke up it stopped leaving the trail but I could still see the object for a few seconds.
