Feb 13, approx 8:00 Eastern time, I was out with my new Xmas present: a small Meade ETX 60 & binoculars, was using the binocs to look for M31, saw a flash of light. Saw a nice fireball
travelling due east, between Cassiopia and Taurus. Estimated 8 to 12 seconds. Bright & mostly steady, no trail, appearance was orange with blue/green as it went low toward the eastern horizon and seemed to break apart. Anyone else see this?

BTW I am 1 hour north of Detroit, MI.
