dc.description.transcriptionDenison Tex Aug -18 - Mr Oscar Monnig Dear Sir - Wish to report seeing meteor of unusual brightness and color at 7.08 pm yesterday. Appeared at about 28 degrees above horizon due north. Moved slowly westward and down for about 20 degrees and when about 15 degrees above the horizon exploded and disappeared, color blue green until explosion and then orange and yellow, was very brilliant in the day light, possibly about 10 times that of Venus on a dark night. My first time to see anything of this kind in daytime Yours truly C.B. Carroll
