    Massive Fireball over US Midwest--did you see it?

    wicked cool video--did anyone see it last night? Probably a meteor, according to CNN:

    Massive fireball reported across Midwestern sky

    Looks like something straight from the movies. Reminds me of Transformers.

    Start checking eyes for vertical pupils. And don't have sex with them unless you want a lizardbaby.

    It just so darn interesting what's happening on and above this planet right now.

    BIG and many earthquakes, wacky weather (but that's debatable) and now fireballs streaking through the sky.

    Cool!

    COOL! I wish it was a UFO. I know one needs to be careful what one wishes for, but it would be so amazing to have alien contact.

    Unless they're mean of course.

    Meteors, volcanos, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados ..... my Netflix movie coming tomorrow that I was planning for the weekend is "2012". Perhaps I'll watch "Weekend at Bernie's" instead.

    My pastor was saying just this Sunday that because of that verse in the New Testament that says "No one knows the day or hour," December 21, 2012 is the one day on which we can be sure the world WON'T end.

    Wow, that's ominous and yet, quite beautiful.

    How come other places have these great astrological phenomenons? Last year's solar eclipse was on the other side of the world.

    Meteorite hunters rush to Wisconsin (Chicago Tribune)

    Paul Sipiera, adjunct curator of the Field Museum's Pritzker Center for Meteoritics and Polar Studies, plans to lead a team of four investigators to Grant County on Friday, and other meteorite hunters are expected to descend on the area too.

    "What we will try to do is coordinate eyewitnesses who saw the fireball and pinpoint its trajectory, then get word out to farmers to get them to be on the lookout for strange rocks," said Sipiera, whose Planetary Studies Foundation, based in Galena, Ill., buys meteorites for the Field Museum collection.
    Wheeee!
