Initial Meteor Sighting Reports

27 Dec. 2013 - Tiffany, Stillwater, Minnesota, USA 20:33:00
4 secs duration. West sky, shot straight down. No sound, bright light with orange and blue and green bursts. Less bright than sun, slightly. It seemed so close, like it could have been a firework a neighborhood over, but it was no firework. It shot straight down fast out of the sky. Seemed so close.
