VERY bright apparent meteor over Southern New Jersey on 10/31 and 11/1 2005

I and my family (3 other adults and 2 children) witnessed a VERY bright, slower than usual and apparently low altitude meteor on Halloween night around 6:30.

It moved from East to West (seemed exact) and was by far the most notable meteor I have ever seen.

I assume it was a meteor, and after some brief research found more than 60 other witnesses from the MD/VA area on a D.C. area tv station's web site:

Also, last night (11/1) around 10:00 p.m. in Egg Harbor Township, NJ my wife and I witnessed a rather bright blue "flash," but did not see thesource of the light.

I have searched for information about meteor showers and have found little information
