Hell if people are calling it in it's not your regular shooting stars damned.gif

The article says someone claimed one of them hit ground.

Perhaps we're passing through a dusty part of the orbit?

While out with coffee in the pre-dawn hours I saw an exceptional 'shooting star' that streaked in an arc nearly 90° across the sky. I thought it curious at the time.

Ah,,,The Orionid Meteor showers! http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials...eor-shower

That shooting star I saw this morning shot out of Orion's armpit and went straight to the North star. chuckle.gif

Was the close encounter anniversary 23th one in the morning of a craft and me. So I make it a point to go out and star gaze every year. So I'm star gazing when this huge meteorite whoosh by me out of no where. My heart I almost spat it out. Yeah. Venus rose in the morning and as bright as ever. Another planet was an inch behind it.

Back 4 years ago in August I was star gazing when I saw this green fireball way far away coming down. Way far away I thought it was till it streaked down a short block away into a neighbors field, smashing and crashing and thudding. I went, wow. That's amazing. It's still there. no one saw it but me. It is on private land so I respect that but this little secret is between you and me only..
