This week, I have seen three meteors, in the early hours of the morning (when it is still dark.) The first two were rather "typical" shooting stars
high up, but this morning, it was so huge, so bright! I watched it travel from one side of the horizon to the other, leaving a bright tail. It was not
that high up at all, and was absolutely dazzling! It was huge.
Then I got online and saw this article in my news feed, and saw it was probably what is being referred to here as a "Fireball".
Though meteors are a rather common occurrence, it strikes me as strange to see so many in such a short period of time- and the one this morning, I
have never seen anything like in my life.
Is there some reason for so many right now? Are we going through a meteor shower ? I don't follow astronomy really, I am quite ignorant in this area,
and would appreciate any input more knowledgeable people might have to offer!
I am just curious.... could there be reasons we see these more some times than others? Could they be just more visible sometimes, due to differing
atmospheric states? Or something else?
