|Meteor w/ sparks.
Decided to report this after hearing reports from 9/1-9/2/99. I am not sure of the date, but it was the next to or the last week July and I was working overnights. I took a late coffee break and went to the roof to see the sky for a few minutes. I was facing south when I saw a bright light out of the corner of my eye. I turned to my right and in the NW part of the sky, I saw a meteor heading almost straight down (maybe at a 5o'clock angle). It was VERY bright and seemed to slow down as it went out. It then quickly brightened again for just a moment only this time, throwing gold/copper sparks from its backside, before burning out. This is my second report in a short time as you may already know. I sent a report of my "light" sighting from Jenks, OK. You may contact me if you feel the need.
