I saw that bad boy as it came to Earth!What a sight!!I was driving in from the west(ahem)on I70.It was about Two minutes into the Third quarter.Bright green/blue and it came in at a straight and narrow but slight angle.Through a lingering cloud bank which lit up ghostly white as the meteor passed through! My dreams last night were mingled with visions of multi-meteors just as brilliant and ominous as this one. I have seen them before,we all have, but never this clear,slow-mo and colorful.
