Balls of fire come near you each day!

Last night i was parking my car and all a sudden i saw a huge flash. At first i thought it was lightning but the light seemed weird, a different color. When i looked up i saw this fireball streak down the sky. I thought it was a shooting star but then realized it was too big and it was also very cloudy. Then i thought it was a missile. I jumped outta my car to listen for an explosion and wait for incineration but nothing happened. It was quite spooky!
WOW!
People at work thought i was goin on with my crazy stories again.

thanks to spaceman for the link and making me feel sane

CHICAGO FIREBALL: Sky watchers in Illinois, Michigan, and Indiana were surprised around local midnight on March 26th-27th when a brilliant fireball streaked across the sky and exploded. "It was a small space rock (perhaps only 1 or 2 meters wide) with a mass of about 10 metric tons," reports Bill Cook of the Marshall Space Flight Center. "Some 500 fragments scattered over a 10-km wide zone in the suburbs south of Chicago." Meteorites struck houses, cars, roads--but no people. Scientists are scouring the area now to collect debris for further study.

A "guest" was viewing this.

Holy Crap! I dream of **** like this. I might have lost it if I had seen that.

god bless the spiders.

this fireball was surreal. it didn't even really register until i started walking home. with all the fear about nuclear war instilled in me young i assumed this was it. i thought i should just stand there and allow it to envelop me, hoping for a quick death.


the title of this thread originally came from my sister when she was like 10 and spontaneously drew me a fireball with "Balls of fire come near you each day!" written on it. That blew my mind and showed it to all my friends which just encouraged her.
She used to hang out in my room when i was a crazy skate punk teenager and do goofy things to get my attention. The other picture of course had "Skate or die!" on it.
