When I was little and this must have been in the 90's maybe 95 or so, I saw an amazing meteor shower near the coast of South Carolina. I was on a golf course past my bedtime to watch it..
There were thousands of them. They kept coming like rockets barely above the palm trees.. (looked like)
I thought they would light the trees on fire from the closeness. Some of the fireballs were bigger than the tree trunks I was near.
I couldn't believe none of them hit the ground or caused any fires.
To this day I have not seen one shooting star that matched ANY of those..
Are you sure it's not that?
