Reported: 9/24/1998 17:07
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Gridley (10 miles N of, and 20 miles SE Chico), CA
Shape: Flash
Duration:3 to 5 seconds
Brief period of light flashed in my car window about 1/4 mile to right and problably no further than 2 to 3 miles in front.

First noticed greenish strek in car window that was dropping almost straight down rather than perpendicular to the area as a meteor might come in at. It had greenish blue sparks from it. Tried to find it for the next few days without any luck.
