NotasI was driving through South Park this morning on my way to a hike. The moon was nearly full, but the sky in this part of Colorado is about as dark as it gets. I pulled over onto the side of the road and turned off my headlights because I knew the Perseids were peaking and I saw several on Wednesday. Then, the brightest meteor I’ve ever seen went streaking across the sky. It was as bright as the moon. The tail went across perhaps a quarter of the sky at any one time. It lasted only 5 or 6 seconds and then exploded as it neared the horizon. I couldn’t believe it.
