About 15 min ago I saw a meteor in the night sky. It was the size of aprox. 4 times a star is and very bright. I saw it for like 4 seconds and 3 little pieces broke off from the back and burned in the atmosphere. It was so weird seeing that. Is there any way of checking this online?

I'll post more if I find something

What about seeing a meteor is weird given how many people have seen them over the history of the planet?
What about seeing a meteor break up is weird given that they can do that when they enter the atmosphere?

I see meteors very often. This one was huge compared to the "normal" ones I usually see here, plus they never lasted for 4 seconds and I've never seen one break up.

If there's anything else you didn't understand..

I've seen two such bolides.
I would use the word spectacular rather than weird.

Well not that i'm an expert on space rocks or anything - quite the contrary - but nickel burns green.

I didn't understand what you found weird about seeing them so I asked, I want to make sure that the context of what I asked doesn't get lost in trying to talk via forum posting.

I saw a huge fireball back in the eighties. Nobody I talked to about it had seen it and they looked at me like I was crazy. It looked so low that I thought it was going to crash in the local area.

Three days later there was an article about it in the paper, it had made it all the way to Canada, at least six hundred miles away. It looked about three times the size of the moon, I thought for sure it was going to hit close by. I bet most of the people that I told it about did not even see the article in the paper so I bet they still wondered if I had a little too much.

It sure is neat seeing a big meteor, I probably will never see another big one again. The chances of being out there when one is flying over is actually very slim.

In these modern times it would not surprise me if others saw it and are discussing it somewhere. I remember my grandmother telling me about a time back in the 50's that she saw what was most likely a meteor. She said she was taking a shower and the kids were playing in the back yard, and she heard them screaming. So she throws a robe on and runs outside only to see what she described as a very large fireball streaking across the sky. She described it as seeming relatively large, but I know that even a small chunk of material can produce a somewhat large fireball once it hits the atmosphere.

I imagine it looked like the one that was captured on film in Russia. I ought to show her that video and ask her if it was bigger or smaller than that one.
