Got to see some meteors last

By Chucksta

Got to see some meteors last night! stood out around 2 am in the morning new york city time. didn't see much for at least a half an hour. I was surrounded by tall buildings and lights, so I went to a less lit area in someones backyard, in the dark, a couple of blocks away. then I watched my show! Dozens of hair strand like meteors were filling the sky. minutes in between them. Those weren't as fun as the one I saw a little later. There was a good pause, THEN A LONG ORANGE METEOR CROSSED THE SKY FOR ABOUT 6 SECONDS! It was a bit slower then the white and rapid ones I was seeing, but this one was a whopper! It basically went in the opposite direction of all the other meteors were going in. IT WAS A GREAT TREAT!
