Hey all. The wife and I just sitting on our front porch saw a meteor/fireball shoot horizontally across the sky just above the tree line. It lasted for a good 4 or 5 seconds and wasn't traveling as fast as the usual meteor sighting. It was pretty cool. I'm just wondering if anyone else saw it. I'm in northern Wisconsin and the meteor was to the south. It wasn't very bright and had no tail, so that's why I can't really call it a fireball, but it was orange and definitely appeared to be a fireball. Hoping someone else saw it. I'll go check AMS to see if there are any reports. This was at about 8:45 Central Time.

AHHHHH. I just missed it. I was outside on the deck at around 8:30pm.

You can report here:

Heading out again in a bit.

Did you at least make a wish?

That is too funny...... I happen to be in Wisconsin right now but I'm over in Marinette and I wasn't looking outside at that time.

Oh, nice! Not common, to see one so long lasting! We do have the Leonid shower this month, so not unexpected, but still cool. Will have to spend some time watching that one.

That's what I figured, one of those meteor showers. Isn't the Taurids going as well? I was hoping maybe it was one of those really bright fireballs somewhere much further south and I just happened to catch it from a distance.
