Initial Sighting Reports-
01FEB2016 Tim Stevens Armada, Michigan 7:30pm eastern time 5-10 seconds Facing west, traveled from north to south Bright ball with tail Bright as moon Had a tail or stream. None

01FEB2016 Derek Saginaw, MI 19:28 EST 3-4 seconds Facing west, it traveled right to left (so north to south); based on the increased brightness as it descended, I expect it had a slight west to east path as well The streak was white but the fireball meteor had a blue tint to it as it approached terminal velocity. At end it was approximately 4-5 times brighter than Venus None I could distinctly see the glowing outline of the meteor itself in its last 300-400 milliseconds of visibility before burning out; I estimate this occured about 30 degrees above the horizon.

There are currently 34 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of February 2016. I expect that 10 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end.

Expect some spectacular bolides, fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of 4 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids, diameters ranging from 500m- 2.8.km, that will safely pass this month.

Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
