I saw something very similar in November of 1950,while riding in the back of a truck and looking north. I thought there had been a nuclear attack !
Later on,after reading a lot of science fiction,I wondered if the meteor had contained “contra-terrene matter” (positrons instead of electrons,etc.)
The color of the “fireball” was almost exactly like that produced by the nuclear test at Eniwitok (sp?)a year or two later.
Cool. If it were me in the car I might have gotten into an accident ... or had an accident.
Yeah, because the time that I saw dinosaurs walking, it sounded just like this.
Wow....If I had seen that I would have thought it to be a ballistic missle. I wonder if there was any explosive sound that happened when it broke up?
I lost my meteor. Thanks for finding it.
That wasn’t any toolbag crashing to earth!
Wow! On the evening of November 14th, between 7 and 7:30 p.m., we saw one of the largest meteors we’ve ever seen as we were driving back to our cabin. The one we saw actually looked like a brilliant green burst before falling through the atmosphere. It was really something to see and I don’t know how many times we said, “wow, oh wow!” LOL
That's exactly what I thought when I saw one headed right for Salt Lake City one evening back in the Cold War days of the early 1960s. It was twilight and the street lights had just come on. The thing grew brighter and brighter until the lights turned off again. I was waiting for the Soviet nuclear blast but instead the thing exploded silently in a huge fireball then disappeared.
We learned the next day a large meteorite had exploded over central Utah. I know teams were sent to search for remnants and can't recall if any were found. But for a few moments I thought WWW3 had started.
Ha ha! My daughter and I saw a pretty amazing meteor on Tuesday, I think, and that’s what we wondered if it could be - the lost toolbag!
The Toolbag Has Landed!
At a $100 Grand it must have been SnapOn.
The average of 2 “Cool” and post 3 “Very hot”: Lukewarm!
LOL I saw the video on Fox this morning after watching a show on Discover last night about Mammoths and a comet hitting the earth 13k years ago, and at the end the supposition was maybe this was much more common than we thought....
