I just saw a fairly large green fireball through the window while talking on the phone. Moving roughly east to west and it appeared to come all the way to the ground. Anyone else see it??
I'm north of myrtle beach in a house next to the ocean...sunset beach
I wish I was on the beach tonight to see it!
Why would you think your fellow freepers can afford to live on beaches?
But my guess is the green fire ball is the gov burning money.
The most interesting thing is that it was traveling almost straight toward the ground instead of shooting to the horizon like they normally do.
I ve been seeing a LOT of Heat Lightning here Looking West towards the Pacific in Marin County in coastal Northern California
Ive never seen heat lightning since I left the midwest forty years ago!!
Like Obama SAY...
AWL Fired UP and Ready TO GLOW
that would lead me believe it has something to do with Quantitate Sequestration......../s
My friends, can your heart stand the shocking facts about green fireballs from Myrtle Beach?
Could be something related to the Perseid meteor shower all though that did peak a short time ago.
Saw one similar a year or so ago with a debris trail.
First time I ever saw a sparkling debris trail.
I haven’t heard much about green fireballs since the 1950s when I saw one in New Mexico. That one was observed in 3-4 states and was traveling parallel with the horizon west to east. For some reason they were seen often in those days in the southwest, especially N.M. There were all sorts of theories related to the nuclear labs in N.M. and White Sands. Dr. Lincoln LaPaz set up a lab at the U. of N.M. just to study them but never came up with a good explanation.
Several things do, nickel, copper, even a form of cyanide that some meteors occasionally may contain.
True that, trying to think of any others.
Just remember the mineral sprinkles we used to put on our fire logs.
Yeah, it’s been hot and humid with a lot of lightning strikes tonight.
I’m in Marin County as well and my window faces West so between watching the Giants lose again and playing on the Computer, I’ve been seeing the flashes out the window.
