26SEP2013 Emerson Davis Indianapolis, Indiana USA 07:03 EST 4 sec I was facing due south and it streaked from right to left Golden Yellow, silent About as bright as moon Yes, fragments stayed directly in line with meteor, directly behind it It was unusually dim for a meteor, however it did have the same speed
26SEP2013 Peter M Mishawaka, IN 7:03am EDT 3 sec W-E across southern sky greenish hue around edge of streak, white in middle. no sound audible from my location brightness similar to full moon in a clear sky Parts not visibly falling off but it did flicker once or twice before going out. Here’s what I wrote up shortly after seeing it so I wouldn’t forget: “A bright streak, occurring from west to east across the southern sky and lasting 2-3 seconds, was visible this morning between 7:00 and 7:05am EDT. It was observed from SouthPaw Farm, south of Mishawaka, IN (16323 Roosevelt Rd, Mishawaka IN 46544). The streak was very bright and had a slight greenish hue to it, especially around the edges. It maintained steady brightness at first, before fading somehwat and flickering once or twice at the end. The appearance was somewhat like a firework or flare, but given the location and time neither of these seem logical. My best guess is that it was a meteor of some kind.”
26SEP2013 John Louisville, KY 7:03:00 10 seconds Facing north, the fireball went west to east Orange blue and green Very bright like fireworks in the sky It seemed to be getting brighter as it fell and appeared to be shedding It freaked me out at first as I wasn’t sure what it was. I feared it was a plane that had exploded and burned up. It was huge and very impressive.
