    Default Utah meteor/comet sighting....

    Two nights ago we had a very impressive light show. Check out this news story and also the various video footage. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=148&sid=8714738

    I sure wish I could have seen this.

    The 'U of U' just started up their new observatory in southern Utah. I think they just put themselves on the map with their footage.

    I was driving along and suddenly the night shadows dissappeared. Daytime at night!
    Wondered for a while if my med levels were exceeded, or was stroking out.
    Glad to know there was another reason for the extra light.
    Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.

    Cool video. I saw one this fall but nearly as impressive as that one. The one I saw had chunks peeling off and then it went bright and vanished. Not bright enough to make it daylight or anything, but a good flash never the less.

    The Russians are planning a mission to change the orbit of a real big near Earth orbiting asteroid named Apophis. It's supposed to bounce off the atmosphere, and then depending on it's departure window, return and maybe smack the planet directly.
