Fireball!

Posted in Astronomy with tags on September 13, 2012 by The Prince of Pithy

I was just outside and saw a fireball!  I saw the meteor start, and then it became very bright with a bluish tint, something I don’t think I’ve seen before.  Then it disappeared.  And what was even cooler, and something I’ve probably only seen a couple of times, is it left a train.  This is a faint, persistent glow after the meteor is gone.  This train lasted for at least fifteen seconds.  It was very cool.
