Mrs. Pow and I had the pleasure of seeing a fireball once. We were sky gazing in the front yard one night ... I think it was actually a July 4th also... and we saw it coming. Completely awesome sight. It passed over the house so we ran to the backyard and could see it for a while longer before it broke into four visible pieces. Amazeballs. Visually speaking, it appeared about as large as the moon does, give or take.

Nearly 100 witness reports of a fireball had come in to the American Meteor Society based in western New York.

I have to assume that these are arriving from a variety of professional sources, including but not limited to police, various other emergency services, and local astronomers, but I'd rather imagine that several Michiganders either already immediately knew to contact this organization (number on the fridge) and share what they saw as if they were reporting a stray to the dog-catcher, or actually took the time to Google who the f*ck to call when you see a fireball explode in the sky, only to discover that, of course, the American Meteor Society is a thing.

I think it was Trump's electoral hopes.

Sighted a handle of Fireball until it was empty.  Does that count?

All these observers and no one managed to record it? Everyone needs dash cams like in Russia

Orbital mechanics don't work like that.

Closest I ever got was seeing a rocket's second stage separate in a launch from Vandenberg. Pretty spectacular, though, I have to say.

Not as whiskey....that shiat's only useful for cleaning the terminals on a car-battery.

Ha! I had a dream last night about a meteor storm devastating the city I was in (don't know where) and having to run around and dodge them. And a really big one landing in something like a giant lake making a tidal wave that washed up just short of where I was. However, the dream lost me a bit when one the size of a car came at me and I just blocked it away. Other than that, it was pretty fun.
