Location of Event: Johnson City, Tennessee
Message: Hi, I was out at the peak time during the leonid meteor shower, at 3 am on the 22nd, and i saw a bright white light, flying low, landed, I found fragments, but not anything on the internet or in books could identify, it’s neon orange and white, very light, and meteor looking, not metal, though, or heavy. Could it be pieces of mars or an asteroid?
I don’t know and the local science dept. won’t return my email. ETSU is the local college. I need a content analysis, it looks as if this could be unprecedented, possibly a new element form a star even. Who knows? thx, I appreciate any help.
