This past December, while driving home from work, I witnessed a huge blue-green fireball arcing over the street on which I live. It split into two pieces, which went in separate directions. I was startled to say the least -- the sun hadn't even set yet! I hadn't seen a meteor like that since I was teenager. Later that evening, a quick Google search revealed that the Geminid meteor shower, known for its blue-green fireballs, was peaking that week. I'd had no idea.
