Awesome videos coming out of Russia. A meteor apparently entered the atmosphere near the city of Chelyabinsk. I don’t think it’s related to tomorrow’s approach by asteroid 2012 da14 but . . . I’m no scientist.
I saw a daytime fireball Feb. 9, 2009 that I reported to the American Meteor Society: http://www.amsmeteors.org/fireball_event/2009/104
It was green, white and orange and made no sound (there were reports a boom was heard near Prince George).
The videos I’ve seen from Chelyabinsk are similar to what I saw, but the object appears to be coming in at a much sharper angle. Interestingly, my girlfriend and I once saw one on the way to Scotland while flying at 37,000 feet.
If that wasn’t enough, I saw a third daytime fireball from Victoria. I was at a Save-on Foods parking lot.
All were breathtaking sights I will never forget.
