Great balls of fire over Canada: NASA investigates
The Canadian Press ^ | Thursday Nov. 4, 2010 4:27 PM ET | no byline

MONTREAL — Great balls of fire have been reported swooping over Eastern Canada and several U.S. states.

Even NASA's on the case.

There are different theories about what was behind the sighting of those fireballs. A NASA spacecraft got a closer look at one of the possible sources today.

The spacecraft flew past Hartley 2 -- taking closeup pictures after the comet made one of its closest passes by Earth this week.

But one expert is skeptical of reports that any fireballs came from Hartley -- which is roughly 1.2 kilometres wide and spews deadly cyanide gas.

Scientist Peter Brown says his meteor group at the University of Western Ontario tracked one of two fireballs while the other was tracked by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office

Reminder: Do not play ping-pong with fireballs.

Especially with fireballs over Canada. (They melt everything when they bounce....)

“Even NASA’s on the case. “

Really? Can they afford to take time away from its “feel good” mission toward the Cult of i$lam?

Priorities you know...

You're right. Sic the EPA on it. Cyanide, you know...

(The media, and other con artists, really hyped the cyanide threat during 1910 Halley visit.)

I've been saying this for days: Obama's not leaving the U.S. to encounter a threat - he's leaving a threat behind.

There is no other reason for his taking all his advisers and all those warships if it weren't for the fact that they think something is going to happen in DC in the next few days.

Tin foil anyone?
