My husband and I were heading home with the kids and saw it.  We were  
on Alma School Rd. between Guadalupe and Elliot.  I thought that  
someone had lit a firecracker that didn't explode properly because of  
the greenish color.  But my husband said no, it was a meteor.  We have  
never seen one so bright before, especially when you consider all the  
light pollution in town.  It sparked quite a lively conversation with  
our girls on the way home.
