Seattle radio news stations reported a very bright meteor this morning.
Reports are vague but I thought I would post it here as a possible
reentry since it was reported to have broken into pieces and moved
slower than a normal meteor. There is a meteor shower going on of
The reports said it moved north to south over Seattle (47N 122W) at
"around" 5 am (1300 UT) 5 January, was blue in color and broke up. No
idea of magnitude but it had to be pretty bright to make the news.
