Remarks The Meteor appeared close enough to make out detail and observe blue and white flames wrapping around the object and leaving a white tail. It was traveling East over the Savannah Ports. It was at the altitude of an Aircraft on approach or landing. I observed it for around 5 seconds before it was out of my view.
