    witnessed incomming fireball during meteor shower


    No pictures taken. I went outside at 1am and looked towards the north sky.
    20 minutes later I saw a white dot appear aprox 40degrees up this dot grew larger and brighter and then flashed off. Ten minutes later a near full sky meteor passed 20degrees north from top of sky in a slight north west direction. When it was close to 2 a distinct slow moving fireball passed in the opposing sky directed in a northeast path in the southern sky. This appeared below upper atmosphere and had a distinct trail of orange burn off and possibly black soot. Thirty minutes later I then saw a meteor pass dead overhead in a west east path. No shower type groupings were determined. A very high altitude aircraft flew into sight from the southwest headed north just after 2. No picture was processed due to infrequency of detection.
