Was just outside and witnessed a shooting star. Headed south to north over my hometown in Maine. Looked it up on here and read a thread about this that was posted back in 2012. I've seen a lot of strange things in the sky and when in groups I am usually the sole witness. I always felt like they were opportunities missed by all others and I was blessed to be the one to see. Although I've never seen one during the daytime. It happened at 16:29 eastern time so it was still pretty light out. Could that have something to do with why it looked so blue? It moved at the same speed as all other shooting stars I've seen, stayed bright blue for a full second, blinked, lit up blue for another half second and then vanished.

Yup, it appears that you spotted one of the rare meteors or pieces of space junk coming in. I've seen them myself over the years and they are impressive. I hope some others saw it to and post but that may be wishful thinking. Enjoy and keep your camera handy.

Any images to link? I'm curious.

It was probably a massive meteor. The two biggest meteors i've seen have been blue. Probably why you could see it during the daytime too.

My apologies but no, even if I had my phone out at the time the pictures would have been below sub-par. What's a good camera to catch stuff like that with because I'm always out at night with a stiff neck from looking. Would love to have recorded some of the stuff I've seen. I remember one night in the winter in iraq, sleeping on the hood of the humvee and seeing one that split and made a perfect y and thinking if I had only recorded that with our gyrocam..

I was curious what the composition might have been to burn as blue. This is from the first good site:


The dominant composition of a meteoroid can play an important part in the observed colors of a fireball, with certain elements displaying signature colors when vaporized. For example, sodium produces a bright yellow color, nickel shows as green, and magnesium as blue-white.

It's also been noted that copper can cause blue colours too.
