Dear Mr Bone,
I think I might have seen a bright green meteor near Oxford.
I was walking North-West over Magdalen Bridge [Lat: 51:45:04N (51.751)
: Lon: 1:14:45W (-1.2459)] at about 10:40pm when I saw it on my right
(to the North-East). It was bright green, and split into about three
pieces as it fell. I only saw it briefly (for about half a second)
before it faded. I saw it falling at a steep angle, and from my
viewpoint it was heading North West. It was lowish in the sky (but I
can't guess the angle I'm afraid), and I have no idea of the distance.
I'm not sure what it was - it is possible that I only saw a firework.
However, all three pieces were falling on the same path (i.e. not like
a firework shower) and I heard no noise. It was moving relatively
slowly (relative to normal meteors, but much faster than a plane).
I don't want to send you off on some wild goose chase, but I thought
it worth contacting you just in case other people reported it too - so
that you might be able to triangulate the position of any surviving
