On location in Wellington Ohio on 9/26/2013
Meteors abound. This one was a strange site: it came in low and fast right above us and was colored red and brass. It left a thin smoke trail and was silent: as all of them are. It seemed unusually low and vanished as fast as it arrived. I had never seen a meteor like this before: it did not look like an ordinary space rock like most – it rather resembled burned-up space debris: brass color with glowing red on half of it. Strange…
I am the worst digital artist of the Century, but this doctored photo of the observing site shows how it looked. The sky was dark when it happened: looking Northeast @ 41deg N.
Now, where did I put that tin foil hat….
