While driving north on Interstate 15, me and a business associate who was driving, saw what appeared to be a meteor falling in the sky. We were looking due north. What was unusual was that the meteor fell straight down. The streak the meteor left was exactly vertical. Seems very unusual to have an exact vertical meteor streak.

While driving north on Interstate 15 in San Bernadino County, California, me and a business associate both saw a meteor fall due north of us. The path did not reach the ground. What was very odd was that the path left by the falling meteor was exactly vertical. That seems very odd to me. The earth and the meteor would have to be travelling exactly towards each other for it to streak perfectly vertical. It is even more odd considering I saw another vertical meteor 1 week before this while travelling home from thanksgiving dinner. That night I was travelling due west and saw a meteor leave a streak due west from my location. I was just entering the Hemet area where a large valley occurs. The meteor streak appeared over the San Jacinto mountains west of hemet. The streak was again exactly vertical. It was almost as if a star just fell straight down out of the sky. A very odd sight. These two meteors are the only ones I recall seeing in the past 20 years and both left exatcly vertical up down paths. Seems very wierd to me.
