Oh, geez, I almost forgot my favorite meteor of the night! It came directly at me for about three seconds. How did I know it was gunnin' for me? Well, from my perspective, what I saw was a star that appeared, grew brighter for a time, then really bright for a moment, then it slowly faded. I'm pretty darned sure it wasn't a supernova, so I'm going to assume it was a meteor whose trajectory terminated right at Clinton Lake drive where I was parked. If only it were a bit more massive, I might have a memento from the event!
