Shape: Changing
Duration:8+ Seconds
Multi-colored round ball (primarily blue and green to start). Appeared from the North East at approx 39 degrees from the horizon . The object was moving unusualy slow for a meteor and was following the horizon as it went past. As it passed at almost a due north position it began to to drop bright yellow spheres of what appeared to be debris from the mainbody. The colors and brightness were like nothing I have ever seen. It continued on a trajectory parallel with the surface and went out of sight. Absolutely the most outstanding light show that I have ever witnessed. My impression was that it was space debris because of the trajectory and the speed which again was unusually slow for a meteor. Unfortunately I was 20 yards from my video camera at the moment it appeared. Sorry I can't provide a picture. However Whas 84 had a listner call in about 1045PM to the talk show and stated he had live video of this event as viewed from Southern Indiana and he stated that it would be on the 11pm news.Ironically just out of curiosity I did a search on compuserve for the meteor shower for this week and found your web site just earlier today, now that's good timing !!!
