Duration:2 seconds
Green Fireball

Witnessed an unusually bright meteor that may have actually made it to the ground. It was coming straight down 90 degrees from my location. I saw from about a 50 degree inclination all the way down to the horizon. It maintained a dark green glow all the way down. It was still dusk the sky has been very smokey here for the last couple of days and a nearly full moon had just risen just a few degrees from where I saw it. These factors that would made visibility difficult are the reason I felt this would be worth making a note of and at any other time of night this fireball would have been bright enough to cast shadows on the ground.
