A meteorite? Or is that just a cover story for an attempted terror attack? Could have been a high explosive charge. We'll never know because the state-controlled media will never tell us!

I see a giagantic fireball in the sky right now. It takes the good bit of a day to pass overhead, but it lights up the whole town.

It was my dog who had the philly cream cheese-pinto bean-broccoli burrito with crab cakes on the side last night. Guess I won’t be serving those again!

One of those passed over Houston in the mid 50’s. Unfortunately I was looking the other way. I never heard where it landed.

Obviously, a UFO which was searching the mid-western U.S. for intelligent life.

The aliens spoke with a number of Obama voters in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati and St. Louis, then went back to their home planet, concluding that there wasn’t any intelligent life on Earth.

What a horrible mental image.
I'm pleasantly shocked I'm still keeping down my lunch.

I'm certainly not hungry anymore. Thanks a lot.

Either that's a pretty decent parody of the nutball crowd, or you're an idiot. Hoping it's the former.

The fireball I’ve seen would mean certain doom for our planet if it collided. Even a relative difference of 5-10% closer or farther would tremendously affect life here.

It was probably a meteror. It doesn’t become a meteorite until it ends up on earth. Learned that from Meteorite Men on the Science channel. lol

I saw that last night. It was around 10:00 p.m. CST. I was in the house and thought it was lightning.

It was quite spectacular!

That video from UW-Madison is cool, thanks.

Methinks it was an ominous warning to that Wisconsin federal judge who ruled that National Prayer Day is unconstitutional.

You’re welcome - a coworker sent it to me.

And I doubt if any liberals in Madistan will get the message - they will look for a way to blame it on “Climate Change” or, at the very least, Palin or Bush. :-)
