    I also saw the Meteor southwest of Nevada Missouri on that night, my friends and I had just finished hunting for the day and we’re driving back to our hotel. I remember looking up at the sky a few minutes before we saw the huge fireball thinking that it was fairly clear out and nice to see the stars. Then a few minutes later we saw the entire sky light up green and saw the actual figure of the fireball shooting across the sky. It was so large and bright. It was by far the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and I will never forget it.

    Saw a large firey object apparently heading almost straight down on November 2 nd at around 7:30 pm just about 15 miles ENE of Enid Oklahoma. it trailed flames and appeared to break apart before reaching the ground. Would guess it landed NE of the junction of Hwy 412 and Hwy 74.

      I saw one that looked like it was going straight into the ground and reported it on this site. From where I was it looked like it had to land within a mile or two of me. (Although it’s extremely unlikely to make it to the ground) Turns out that a lot of people saw it too and reported it. After the flight path was triangulated from all the sightings it actually landed about 200 miles from where I saw it.

      Unfortunately, you cannot tell much about the actual angle, trajectory or even location from a single perspective. That’s what makes this site so awesome in my opinion.

    4:45 a.m. Lansing, Michigan. Observed a bright, good sized strobe-bright white light in the southeastern sky moving north east. It was trailed by another moving light that was star-sized and not very bright. I couldn’t get to another window soon enough to see its trajectory.

    Seen it from Diggins Missouri. I live in Goodhope Missouri and I actually worried it was going to hit somewhere on our property based on how low it was and the direction it was going.
