Perseid meteor shower going on right now - sky is not falling, nor was an alien chasing you.... The technical term for a bright fireball is a bolide
- nifty huh....
For more details check the spaceweather sites or other astronomy sites for details, pictures and all sorts of goodies. Big sunspot coming into view
on sun - could spark some nice auroral activity soon too - keep looking up....
