Jan. 2018 meteors
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:47:58 pm »
Since the new year until last night, there's been a lot of bright meteor sightings. They are probably associated with the Quadrantid meteor shower, which peaked January 3. The Quadrantid shower though, is not particularly known for a lot on meteors, or very bright ones, but has been known to produce just a few large bright meteors occasionally before.

Usually meteor showers produce very faint "falling stars", most of which can only be seen in dark rural & country skies.  The meteors are usually about the size of a grain of sand to a small pebble. These bright sightings were probably meteors 6-10 inches in diameter.

Since the New Year, we've had frequent bright sightings from Virginia to Quebec, as far west as the northern mid-west USA, & as far east at the UK & Finland.

These are those that were caught on video.
