(I couldn't figure out where to put this thread, so I put it under SCIENCE (& Technology) because I believe it was just a meteor.

Anyway, it happened at about 11:03 PM EST. I'm in Central Jersey - right by Somerville. It was coming down from the Southwest direction.

It was bright metallic blue - brilliant - and it was as big, if not bigger than a full moon (meaning it was probably close).

It streaked in a downward motion, and lasted only about 2-3 seconds. Did anyone see this? I wish I knew where it hit so I could grab a rock!

Somebody else tonight posted a thread about lights in the sky in the Maryland area. It was about an hour before your thread. It was titled something like "People in Maryland look outside now!"

Interesting night so far!

I didn't follow it earlier, but I searched and found it. Seems to be fairly popular already. I guess I should have paid it more attention!!

The Delta Aquarid meteor shower peaks partly tonight. I've seen 3 very bright meteors so far, but nothing like the June Bootid I saw on June 24th! Now THAT was bright!

I think that explains it. Thank you!
