You're kidding! God damnit.

I'm in the Bay Area and just slugged thru a 5 mile run in pitch dark, still hot as hell, and apparently got back to my car like 5 minutes before this happened.

If I ran another 1/2 mile I'd have had a great view. I was literally admiring the night sky right before I got to my car on such a clear night.

I don't think the ISS breaks up into pieces and has Sparks flying after in its tail a reply to: Phage

Thanks, Phage. That site's next scheduled event is for tomorrow, and the orbital track doesn't cross North America. Any other resources you could point to? I tried spaceweather.com and the All Sky Fireball Network but didn't see anything useful (for this event, anyway).

If it entered the upper atmosphere it would. And the upper atmosphere is very high.

It's on the news already. Seen even as far as Utah. Apparently it's the Aquarid meteor shower

Right, this one does not seem to be on the list.

There don't seem to have been any launches that may have dropped a booster either.

An alien invasion disguised as a meteor shower is a bit more exciting though.

Great, now you've added two more sites that I'll have to frequent. You're adding to my "to do" list!


Reports all over Twitter now with videos. They all show what I saw. It's slow!

This would be unusual. The Delta Aquarids are not known for fireballs and are mostly visible in the southern hemisphere and tropical latitudes in the northern hemisphere.
Being visible for an extended period of time would also argue against it.

The videos really look like space junk.

seems there's other videos out there already that are way better than the one I was going to post. But I bet Phage is correct, of course.

Saw it in Northern Nevada as well.

Appears to have been one massive chunk of rock that broke up into two large pieces upon entry. Lit up the sky quite nicely.

I think this might be what you saw:


Not likely a meteor, unless it was at the very end of its trajectory. They move much much faster usually.

True that. I only went out because I heard whistling on the street out front. My Pavlovian response dragged me out the door. Turned out one of the neighbors was calling her actual dog. Saw this thing as soon as I stepped out.

Now back to my regularly scheduled life...

DEFINITELY a Necromonger invasion. Quick, somebody call the Federal Government to come help everybody!

I'm in San Diego. I saw it also. Seemed to take a full minute to move across the horizon from west to east. Really impressive fireball(s). Glad I was outside to see it.

I thought I heard about a Chinese satellite that some thought they may have lost contact with. I don't remember the details. If it was Chinese they probably won't say a thing. Anyone else remember anything about this?
