OpmerkingenIt was a full moon last night, and I was actually looking for the position of the moon in the sky. I'm on the 4th floor of a four story building, with an unobstructed view of the western sky. So when I gaged the angle of viewing, it was based on my building height. Ocean level and the horizon is lower than the area I was viewing from, just an FYI.I've seen bright bright green (and large) meteors before, but I've never seen one falling in a completely vertical position!
