That's cool looking but I seriously hope no one was injured if it indeed was a meteor
OT: Meteor may have struck Wisconsin 4/14/10.
That wasn't a meteor! It was one of Zoltan's punts finally returning to earth!
Everyone knows Zoltan's punts NEVER return to earth!!!
he shanks one.
Well, see what happened was one of his punts caught the moon's gravitational pull and was sent towards earth.... ah hell, you've seen Armageddon haven't you? LOL
be much, much bigger?
on my lap?
you want nick saban on your lap? twisted.
Well played nikj, well played.
Have they verified that a human like boy with super strength was found at the site of the crater? I'm pretty sure it's supposed to land in a corn field.
I have watched them and thought the show was decent.
Looks like Tesla has been shooting electricity over the pole again.
"Damn, only missed columbus by a few hundred miles!"
its about time.
Tim Tebow got pissed that his draft stock is falling and went ballistic.
No--it was God punishing us for questioning Tebow's greatness. That was just a shot across the bow.
Now officially "the bow" of the earth.
That is clearly an alien spaceship. Clearly.
This isn't an unusual circumstance. If you have a clear, dark sky, you could probably catch 1-2 an hour on any given night. Bigger ones like that are slightly less often as most burn up before reaching the ground. What's dangerous is if they bring in a good sized portion of frozen gases. Some scientists theorize that the Chicago fire of 1905 might have actually been caused by a meteor instead of "Betsy's cow" as the urban legend goes. There were actually widespread fires over Michigan's LP, northern Illinois, and Wisconsin all spark over a period of a few hours.
1-2 an hour?
Depends on what you are drinking. Good Scotch is known to enhance this phenomenon.
I'm talking meteorites in general. Not big ones. Several hundred meteorites enter our atmosphere every day.
In Jamaica, my significant other and I watched a meteor shower for over an hour. There were literally hundreds of them, for a while we wondered if we were slipped some shrooms, but no. It was crazy.
Actually, including micrometeorites, estimates are that about 30,000 tons a year of space junk enter the atmosphere. I have never tried this, but supposedly, you can find them on your roof and collect them by filtering rain water from your down spout.
Big ones, as we all know, can be a problem. Ask any raptor.
That's the one! Jumped out of my seat when that thing came at him.
When the raptor comes through the pipes after Ellie has turned the power back on. You know something is going to happen, but the angle of the surprise catches you off guard.
Can't find a cool link for it though...
Velociraptor Awareness day is quickly approaching.
Apparently this lit up the sky right above northern Illinois. Consider me pissed for being inside playing NCAA 10.
So mark your calendars, and get your video cameras and mass- spectrographs ready:
Well I'll be dipped in shit if that ain't a meteor.
one of Jim Sorgi's passes reentering the atmosphere.
That was a fireball. FormerlyAnonymous is correct that on a standard night you'll see 1-2 meteors an hour, but some larger ones survive the atmosphere long enough to be more brilliant. Most fireballs never reach the surface and burn up well before reaching the ground, though sometimes very small fragments may make it.
Just completely per chance I saw a meteor like 10 years ago from my backyard back in suburban Detroit.
If a meteor larger than a small rock hit the ground, you'd know it.
That wasn't a meteor, that was Denard Robinson just doing his daily run. As you can see he runs so fast that his hair acts like a wing of sorts, allowing him to take flight. This was just him coming back into the atmosphere. Nothing new.
I just got back from Basketball, pulled into my garage, walked out to my mailbox and all of a sudden the sky just lit up. at first i thought it was lightning, but then I saw the flash of the actual meteor (if it was that). This was circa 10:00-10:05 pm last night. I live in zipcode 53717 (madison).
Pretty f'in sweet!
believes it is a US military aircraft. He also believes 9/11 was an inside job, so you know holidays are a load of fun.
Meteor comes tantalizingly close to hitting the Minnesota Twins.
+1 For using the word tantalizingly and spelling it right!
