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.

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.

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.

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

JOURNALIST: No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space.

No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us.

At midnight on the twelfth of August, a huge mass of luminous gas erupted from Mars and sped towards Earth. Across two hundred million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, came the first of the missiles that were to bring so much calamity to Earth. As I watched, there was another jet of gas. It was another missile, starting on its way. And that's how it was for the next ten nights. A flare, spurting out from Mars - bright green, drawing a green mist behind it - a beautiful, but somehow disturbing sight. Ogilvy, the astronomer, assured me we were in no danger. He was convinced there could be no living thing on that remote, forbidding planet.

"The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one," he said. "The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one - but still they come!"

JOURNALIST: Then came the night the first missile approached Earth. It was thought to be an ordinary falling star, but next day there was a huge crater in the middle of the Common, and Ogilvy came to examine what lay there: a cylinder, thirty yards across, glowing hot... and with faint sounds of movement coming from within. Suddenly the top began moving, rotating, unscrewing, and Ogilvy feared there was a man inside, trying to escape. he rushed to the cylinder, but the intense heat stopped him before he could burn himself on the metal.

"The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one," he said. "The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one - but they still come!"

"Yes, the chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one," he said. "The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one - but they still come!"

It seems totally incredible to me now that everyone spent that evening as though it were just like any other. From the railway station came the sound of shunting trains, ringing and rumbling, softened almost into melody by the distance. It all seemed so safe and tranquil...

I saw it blaze through the sky in southern Chester County here in PA. and that picture does not do it justice. I have never seen anything quite like that in my life

It was amazing.

I was video taping a high school Lacrosse game at the time, but of course it was half time and the camera was off...story of my life.

Meteor Over Manhattan...

Very dangerous situation, with a large population on an Island. A meteor such as this might be the force that makes it tip over.

My wife and I saw it over the Mass Pike last night about 8:00 or so. At first I thought it was a military jet in trouble it was moving so fast. Then it began to break up an it was clearly a meteor. It was amazing

For the record, without regard to the inaccuracy at the source, this was absolutley, positively, 100%

NOT a “meteor”.

That pic looks like the recent comet that was visible in the western sky near sunset earlier this month...

I saw this thing! It crossed over Manhattan a bit south of me as I was walking down Broadway in the high nineties. It went from west to east and looked greenish, like a neon green, and then it appeared to burn out and disappear, like a huge shooting star.

It looked like it was only a few blocks south of me. Quite low in the sky. But the article says these things are deceiving.

I stopped in my tracks and said “What the he!! was that!” No one else had noticed it. I told someone later I thought I saw a drone.
