Wow, those Green Meteors are really amazing aren't they? I saw one about three years ago. I will be completely honest, when I first saw it I was
really freaked out. To begin with, I never even knew that Meteors came in any color other than maybe a White Flash, or Yellow at the most colorful.
Second, I was up really late all by myself, I was watching television when for whatever reason I just happened to look out of my window, and at that
very moment I saw it come streaking down right over the tree-tops (it was close enough that I easily compared it to a falling firework ember).
I feel very fortunate that I witnessed this as it just happened to further advance my interest in Astronomy. I contacted a few individuals, and the
most AMAZING part is that through the grapevine, I found on record that another individual about an hour west of me had spotted the very same object a
few seconds before I did.
The Green color of the Meteor is from the burning of Nitrogen Gases in the atmosphere. Answer one thing for me, wasn't the green the most awesome
pure color of green that you have ever seen?
