I’ve never seen anything like it before. It was flying over Glen Allen, VA 23059 at approximately 9:30 pm EST."

10JUN2016 Lynn Swank Lewisburg, PA, USA 22:05 EST. (10:05 pm) Didn't time it, but maybe 30-40 seconds Facing south, moved left to right from far left about 2/3 way across in front of me and then flickered and disappeared Orange (like fire). Bright flash, then began to flicker and disappeared A little brighter than Venus No, single object Photo from smart phone, so not good quality by any means.

10JUN2016 Cathy P MONROE! NC, USA 22:00 / EST / PM 7 Seconds We were facing EAST, saw it dropping diagonally, moving from right to left. It disappeared behind tree level. Bright Green and Bright White Same as the moon. Yes, it looked like it was on fire, and pieces were sparking. It was amazing! We've never seen such a bright meteor. Thought a plane was crashing. Husband saw it with me, he is an AF veteran. Heart was pounding.

10JUN2016 Julie Carnes I was coming down Highway 85 towards Burlington North Carolina Friday night June 10th between seven and 8 o'clock and it looked like a plane was crashing at first but it was I am assuming a meteor! Huge streak of light blues and greens then a big flash and it was gone! I've never seen anything like it it was pretty amazing definitely happened wish I could have grabbed my camera faster!
