ScienceDaily (Mar. 8, 2008) Astronomers from The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, have captured rare video of a meteor falling to Earth.
Astronomy Department at Western has a network of all-sky cameras in Southern Ontario that scan the sky monitoring for meteors. Associate Professor Peter Brown, who specializes in the study of meteors and meteorites, says that Wednesday evening (March 5) at 10:59 p.m. EST these cameras captured video of a large fireball and the department has also received a number of calls and emails from people who actually saw the light.

What's the point? Are they looking forward to this?
everybody needs to believe in something?
What the Nat. Geo whacko crowd is really attempting to portray in that issue is their fevered imaginings of what the area surrounding the Big Sh*tty will look like after those gun totin’ knuckle walkers out in “fly-over Country” stop sending all those transfer payments.
It will be the end of civilization as THEY know it.
SUPER! Last Saturday night we went to Haak winery in Sante Fe Texas. The astronomy club from NASA was out there with GIANT telescopes. We saw Saturn, Mars, and the Orion Nebula. It was amazing! You could even see Saturn’s moons.
Keep the Earth clean,
it isn’t Uranus!
My cat hates shows like that. She thinks SHE Is the most important creature in the universe. LOL
They seem to be caught up in the global warming hysteria, which has done much to damage their reputation as a thinking magazine.
Stood outside in subzero temps in February to watch the lunar eclipse. It was extraordinary.
Funny story... I heated up a cup of hot cider, to ward off the chill, and brought it outside with me. I set it down on the snowbank, which was up to my chest, to phone my brother-in-law to see if he was watching.
The cup of cider melted the snow it was on, and tipped over, spilling the hot cider all over my snowpants.
The cider froze within seconds, so I never got wet.
I thought of licking the cider off the snowpants, but figured it just wasn't quite the same. ; )
Yep... I don't get the attraction of Earth's, or human demise.
Kinda makes gardening pointless.
Joke's on her. My two cats know they are. :o)
Well, yes, they wistfully dream about “the earth we’ll never know”.
Yep, for the past 10 years or so hardly a month goes by that they don't try to trash something to do with a western economy, while ignoring the real sh*t holes worldwide. National Geo still clings to the completely discredited Algore/IPCC theory of anthropogenic global warming, too. It's a crying shame for somebody like me who has subscribed to the mag since the 1960's.....btw, I have a copy of a National Geographic from May of 1921 that I found in my grandmother's attic after she passed in 1973. Pretty stark contrast to what they put out nowadays......

Simple. The planet will eventually get whacked by a

Humans do, but for how much longer? And will it get

“the Nat. Geo whacko crowd”
Man you got that right!
I’ve subscribed to National Geographic for almost 40 years. It used to be an informative, enlightening magazine.
Now it’s a lefty political rag.
I knew it was over when they went with a trendy new “NatGeo” name.
Treasure that 1921 copy. I know you do.
Have you seen that special on when man is gone? CATS do take over the cities
