Early risers spot green fireball over Central Md.
Reports are beginning to arrive about what sounds like a rather spectacular fireball meteor over Central Maryland just before dawn Monday morning. Not sure how many people would be outside to see this at such an hour, but let's see what other accounts might come in.
Here's what we have so far. (The file photo is probably close to what these people saw):
"I had a major meteorite sighting over Cockeysville at 0445 hrs this AM. Large green fireball with pieces breaking off and burning off. From the northwest to the southeast. Way cool- first one ever!" - John Selway, White Hall, Md.
morning at about 4:40am. When I reached the intersection at Conowingo
Road, I noticed an amazing bright streak of green light falling
diagonally through the sky. I lost sight of it as it appeared to go
behind the buildings at the intersection. I've never seen anything like
it in my life. When I arrived at work, I immediately started searching
on atmospheric sightings and came across your blog. Can a meteor have
this type of color?" -Michele
