I was struck by the similarity of my sighting and that of one reported in West Covina as 10/09/1955.
West Covina is about 20 miles East of my sighting.
I was playing catch with my brother in the parking lot of the apartment complex we were living in in northeast Los Angeles near the Glendale border.
I was facing East, towards West Covina) when I saw a large green meteor travelling north towards the San Gabriel Mountains.
I don't recall the exact day or time but it was a bright clear day and the meteor was very visible appearing low in the horizon and to move horizontally with the ground.
I recall that there was a brief article in the Los Angeles Examiner that mentioned the sighting.
