Bright meteor and Mars in Tucson AZ

Looks like it was shot from Mars, not really of course, but it does look like it Mars shot it toward Earth. First time I have caught such a conjunction.

HG Wells!. War of the Worlds ! Shooting the cylinder to Earth- in my imagination.

Thanks to Mike Read at Kitt Peak observatory who made a linear panoramic from this original fisheye. To see it, cut and paste this link into your browser: https://www.flickr.com/photos/eliot_photos/50382297542/
