They say it happens more frequently than we know, and that it is only getting noticed more due to the one that hit over Russia. But I think if that were true, we’d still have people taking photos of these things and posting them up.

Even I’ve been seeing shooting stars, and I’ve never seen them before. And not because I’m looking for them now, either. This meteor is more impressive than what I saw, of course.

Makes me wonder if some collision somewhere in space sent a bunch of chunks of large rocks our way.

This one does look and sound particularly dramatic in appearance. This report described it as, “A meteor that looked like an immense ball of fire streaked across the sky up and down the East Coast Friday night, astounding viewers throughout Massachusetts and beyond with its tantalizing tail of colored flames.”

Well that’s just great! Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis? This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes... The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Why worry? Each one of us is carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back. If we die—well—that’s what happens anyway.

Might be a mountain headed into the sea sometime in our near future eh?

Darn, I really made a mistake buying that Guidance System from China. I had D.C. as the Primary Target and NYC as the Secondary.

Well, back to the drawing board, ho hum.

Up AND down? That truly would be astounding.

Goozer, my kinda guy. Well, he tried to clean up New York but he met his match in the Democrats up there.

Well, I don’t know, but that doesn’t look like a meteor to me. It looks more like a contrail.

I wonder how many of these “meteors” are satellites that have finally died and left their geosyncrowhatever orbits?

The security cam videos make it clear this wasn’t a jet contrail.

It better hurry up. I’m dying away here with my workload.

It looks like a Chinese ballistic missile to me. :-)

Sorry, Venkman, I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

That idea is just ridiculous, by the way. No disparagement intended because not everyone is an astronomer. But the earth along with everything else is orbiting the sun at great speed. There is no "our way". The only thing that could cause an increased incident of meteors is if somehow there is more debris everywhere, not just here. I see meteors every time I go out to look at the stars. Sometimes I see an unusually large ones.

So what you are essentially saying is that asteroids we can’t see and don’t know are there, cannot collide and fragment in a path our orbit takes us?

Wow. Thank God. For a moment there I thought that might be a problem. But since it’s not and we know all trajectories and locations of every solid chunk of matter in the universe, I’ll go back to bed now.

Talk amongst yourselves....
