I saw a bright green meteor yesterday. What would cause a meteor to be bright green? Is this common?
Any chance you're from Colorado?
No Arizona and it was in the evening.
Many meteors are green. Perhaps even most, by my personal experience. I'm speculating, but the green color may actually be emission from ionized oxygen...
Most meteors are composed principally of nickel and iron, but I honestly don't know what the "flame test" colors of these metals are.
