Aurigid meteor shower - Astronomy for beginners report

Astronomy for beginners is very excited that sight reports of vivid meteor activity on September 1st were received from Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, California, Ohio, Oregon, Texas and western Canada. That list will grow as photographs, video and eyewitness reports are accumulating all the time.

I don't know if it was the tail end of the Aurigids, but I saw a very large bright blue white, constant body moving E - W at 22:51 20070901 just west of Kalispell, MT. 90 degree arc speed of approximately .8 seconds.

Hard to judge the trajectory of course, but a SWAG of probable impact west of Seattle.
