Explosion, fireball reported in Nevada, California

Recommended Posts

Cool. I've only seen one, when I was about five years old. I was riding home from picking up a pizza with my parents and it flew right over our car, my dad pulled over and we got out and watched it. Couldn't see it too well because of all the trees, though.

Space debris is attracted to earth by it's gravitational pull and is disintegrated by the friction of our atmosphere. You can't explain that!

Probably the government increasing gravity, to enslave us somehow. Or just Scientology again.

I do love a good meteor shower though, I think it was the Leonids that were exceptionally dense around 5 years ago with over 20 shooting stars a minute. Never exploding or brightly flashing though.

That's pretty crazy! If I were near that place, I would probably look for the fireball in a telescope and then get a video camera to record it falling down to the surface of the earth!

It happened pretty instantaneous and without much warning to the commoner.

Did you also download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Runtime? That usually solves the "missing .dll" issue.

Which means you'll be looking for meteors that are obliging enough to strike the atmosphere at a shallow angle, which should slow them sufficiently for you to aim a camera at them. Most have a steeper angle of entry, so you mightn't have time to point anything better than a mobile phone at them.
