AMAZING !!! LARGER THAN USUAL BRILLIANT FIREBALL IN WSW MIDNIGHT MONTANA SKIES.

BEAUTIFUL YELLOW-GREEN-BLUE FIRE BALL WITH ORANGE TO RED TAIL APPROACHING ALMOST PERPENDICULAR TO EARTH WITH MAYBE A 15 TO 30 DEGREE ANGLE VARIANCE?? AS I WAS TRAVELING NORTH, IT WAS IN THE W.S.W. SKIES. IT WAS LARGER THAT USUAL FOR A METEOR.

THE FIREBALL WAS 1/3 TO 1/2 SIZE OF THE MOON, BUT WITH THE TAIL, IT WAS LARGER.

THE SIZE MADE THIS UNUSUAL. ALSO THE BRILLIANCE AND THE LENGTH OF TIME IT WAS VISABLE IT WAS AMAZING!!I WAS SO AWE STRUCK, I COULD ONLY LOOK. IT WAS APPROX 23:45. 11/30/04 IT WAS NOT STREAKING AS ONE WOULD IMAGINE A METEOR TO BE BUT GOING SLOWER THAN I HAVE SEEN THEM.
