Hey all.

I went outside last evening and lo and behold!  A Super Bright and Very Long 
Meteor shot across the sky from about 10 degrees south of Vega all the way to 
about 5 degrees south of Arcturus. It was a creamy yellowish white color in the 
interior and a bright red all around the edges.  The meteor cast shadows of my 
pick-up truck on the driveway and my tree in the yard.  It broke up into 
numerous pieces just before if faded away and left a very clearly seen vapor 

Those of you who were at the All AZ S.P. in 2011 saw a very bright meteor which 
lit up the mountains all around us.  Well, the meteor last night was just as 
bright, but was much longer.  What a nice sight for a Sunday Night!
IF only I had my camera out instead of my toothbrush!!
