Remarks 1080p color video of this event is posted here on my MeteorMarc Youtube channel at Thanks to AMS user Pat B who had the time to within 30 seconds I was able to find the Fireball on the WestSky cam peaking in and out behind the transmission lines. Thanks Pat B and others for the reports. Enjoy the video of your meteor sighting! Also skywatchers please try to note the time as close to the minute if possible. Another tip if you have an Iphone you can tell Siri to "Open Compass" to get the direction right when creating a report.
