I'm still wondering about the bright green daylight one I saw driving east towards Death Valley.  Satellite? It left a smoke or very persistent vapor trail, but presumably was coming in fast enough to burn up.  Unless they make high-altitude signal flares and test them there.

We get hit with 100 tons of that stuff every day and the government has yet to write the first littering citation for whatever is dumping it on us.

My wife insists that that is NOT how boobs work.

I think she's just holding out on me.

It's a fair question, Swift. Being geeky, possessed of good glass and, often enough, posted up in places without much light pollution (or weed), I've seen a boatload of meteors - including many, many green ones.

Different shiat makes different colors when it burns. The green is most likely nickel.

I don't remember ever seeing any kind of smoke or vaporized-meteor trail, though. So it was probably aliens.

I personaly have seen nearly a dozen, what I am talking about happens world wide every day.

How often does a meteor hit the earth?

An estimated 500 meteorites reach the surface each year, but only 5 or 6 of these typically create a weather radar signature with a strewn field large enough to be recovered and be made known to scientists.Thank you Google

Bummer, checked my Ring cameras from that time and only found video of my son and his girlfriend exiting the house about the time of the fireball. (we knew she was visiting)
But I did get to see a skunk walk up our driveway and into our front yard at 1:30AM, then a cat in our backyard around 2:30AM.
