    I saw a meteor in Fairfax in the southern sky on November 30, 2011 at 21:20 while walking my dog. It was bright orange, broke up into to hundres of pieces. Because I could make out the individual pieces I felt it landed nearby, possibly in Prince William County. The entire event lasted for about 4 seconds.

    I saw a similar object this evening around about 50 miles east of DC moving towards DC. It lasted about 3 Seconds and was incredibly bright. It seemed very low in the hemisphere. It occurred around 7:30.

    Saw similar Thanksgiving midnight travelling E to W north of Erie, PA! A Stat MedEvac chopper came the same route moments later, they are quite different in appearance! It almost looked as though the chopper fired a flare or tracer round ahead of itself!
