On Friday, November 4, we were greeted with a rare temperate evening in November while the moon was in conjunction with Jupiter. This has provided a great opportunity for many to see outside and discover an amazing meteor streak across the sky. He. She It was reported by many in the Mid-Atlantic region and even captured on video in Baltimore County, Maryland.
First, the moon and Jupiter
That’s what got people out on a Friday night and I wanted to show you the best pictures I could find. Jim Olson was able to use a telescope to capture the moon. Jupiter and some of the moons surrounding it in one frame.

Dave McHugh and his wife were doing just that right through their fire pit when they saw a streak of bright greenish-blue light across the sky around 9:15 p.m. EDT. He sent me a message, which prompted me to search. I followed this up by writing to my friend Mike Hankey at The American Meteor Society who lives in Baltimore County, Maryland. He has a network of cameras in his ALLSKY network pointing up at night, and he’s always recording.
Meteorite seen over northern Baltimore County, Maryland
This was at AMS ALLKSY7 from Mike Hankey in Monkton MD. See about 9:15 p.m. EDT.
The result is the video below. Thanks to reports submitted to the American Meteor Society, they were able to identify and plot the most likely path.

Next launch of Wallops to celebrate on your calendar
total lunar eclipse
November 8 – This will reach full sunrise. In fact, the eclipse will end in our area at 6:42 a.m., the expected sunrise that day.
This means that the moon will set in the west during the eclipse. If the sky is clear, it will provide a great opportunity for photographers to capture a low angle blood red moon with great framing of buildings or landscapes. I really hope it clears up and we get great photos to share.
