Now through November there are some rather large asteroids zooming through our vicinity, 1 km or larger, so I would think some smaller chunks would be also zooming by, some much closer.
It is something I noticed about the big asteroids that go by, they in themselves might not be close to the earth, but it seems like smaller pieces might be following or before them that are closer, sometimes entering the atmosphere.
No links to provide for this, as it is just something I noticed the last few years when big rocks go past, there are meteor sightings around the same time.
Spaceweather has the list of asteroids known to be cruising our area,
if one looks they can see the bigger ones.

Here in Tennessee last night my son and I was driving and saw two "shooting stars" back to back.... had they been faint we wouldnt have noticed but they were brighter than Ive ever seen in my 42 years.
Just had to throw that out there. lol

Satellite or Meteorite.....either way it's cool!
Here's my theory
Joking aside.....X-37B is in orbit at the moment.....another intentionally downed satellite??

This is definitely a bolide. I saw one like this once back in 1973 late at night. Fairly rare phenomena, but when you see one, you NEVER forget it. The one I saw lit the entire sky up like it was daytime, then broke apart into fragments that were pink white and green and finally faded out. It was AWESOME.

Looks nothing like CGI. You guys should have a crash course in video cutting/animation/after effects, as soon as you get comfortable with the subject matter you can easily dismiss real footage from CGI (not trying to attack someone, as part of my education I learned this stuff so it's easy for me to distinguish between real or fake).
