September 13, 1956: "Mrs. Russel Horn, a watcher on the Two Rock fire look-out in Mendocino County, was awakened by a meteor flying past the lookout a few minutes before midnight Friday night, Sept, 7. Mrs. Horn was asleep in the look-out, which is between 2,500 to 3,000 feet high. Just before midnight, she was awakened by a very bright light. Startled, she got up in time to see the meteor passing the window, and heard a hissing sound. She ran out onto the catwalk around the station, and saw the meteor heading west and finally disappearing. Since Mrs. Horn can sometimes see the ocean on clear days, she decided that it must have gone into the ocean. The sides of the look-out all are made of glass, and there is nothing covering the top. Mrs. Horn, who said that it seemed like a dream, didn't realize the danger until the meteor was past." (Cloverdale Reveille)
