"Smoking Star Meteor."
A brilliant, December meteor streaks across the skies above Saint Mary Lake, in Glacier National Park. The meteor went dark above Dusty Star Mountain, or "Iszika-kakatosi" in Blackfeet, which means smoking star or meteor. This earthgrazer meteor lasted several seconds and left behind a smoke trail that persisted for at least 24 minutes.
