It was supposed to be a giant meteor. Something was screwed up here.

Giant meteor: check

Loud boom: check

Smoking crater at the legislative building: no check

2 out of 3 isn't good enough.

The boom wasn't even enough to drown out Trump's victim whining.

Much disappoint.

Let us not discriminate against bodies from space.
It's only just arrived, give it time to choose its nouns..

This is a photo from 1972. The object was briefly in the atmosphere but returned to space.

I heard it & it shook my house a bit. Went outside expecting to see a jet or 3 headed west from Hill, b/c they're supposed to wait till they're over the lake before going sonic but they don't always. Within 2 minutes everyone's Ring footage was up showing the streak through the sky. I'm sure some industrious individual's watched all the clips & is trying to triangulate where it might have landed.
