About 15 minutes ago (5:50 pm 1/23/2007) I saw a bright light streaking northward through the sky. The light had a greenish and orangish colored tail following behind it. Judging from my location (eastern Durham) and the direction of the light I would say that it landed somewhere north of the city. Did I most likely see a meteor? If not what else could the object have possibly been?

You may have mentioned it and I missed, but did anyone report seeing a large meteor falling in the Northeast/Eastern sky about 5:45 on Tues Jan 23, 2007? The sky was still blue and it was white streaming/rolling down. It was really big, I even wondered if it was a plane falling. Thanks, Sharon House
In Raleigh, looking north at 5:50 pm on Jan. 23rd, I saw an object falling from the sky and possible burn up (large green flash). Did anyone else notice this? Mary Frazier
