Hi was observing the Great Orion Nebula , for a few hours yesterday morning , wow if anyone hasn't seen this through a good telescope then do
yourself a favour, it is awe inspiring and achingly beautiful.
Anyway I then went to sleep before work for a while, and got a call from a friend at approx 0500 I think friday morning, he asked me if I had seen the
giant meteor that streaked across the sky.
He described a green shooting object that broke up at its tail (or appeared to) he said it lit up the whole sky.
I asked around but no one else saw it and there is nothing I can find on the net about it.
Could someone help? perhaps you saw it if you live in Australia..it was going roughly NE to SW again roughly.
Sorry if this is in the wrong thread , Iam just so mad I missed it a si have seen a few small meteors in the lens of my scope when its pointed towards
Searched this quite breathtakinglly detailed thread also but found nothing.
