I was just driving home and saw a bright white object with a blue tail
falling from the sky, it was west of Kansas City. Wondering if anyone else saw it.

Any explosions as it touched down?

Was it white and blue as in white hot... or did that look to be it's natural color?

These questions might be fairly irrelevant depending on how far away from you it was. I've got no idea of the scale of the states in the US... it takes a day to get from one to the other here by car


Anyway, sounds interesting. Update us when you can, and listen to any talkback radio stations in your area, they are usually good at having spooked callers report things.

It was going at a high rate of speed falling from left to right at about a 45 degree angle and I saw it for about 5-6 seconds before it went out of
where I could see it.

Wow, cool!, May I ask, since I can't figure out the time stamp at the top of your thread, what time it was when ya saw it? I just a squeak North of Chicago, so I wanna know if I shoulda ducked.

Ok. Nice...

So you guess it hit somewhere near Kansas City? Or further out?

I would say it is just a meteor... except they aren't bright white and blue... they don't get that hot. A dull orange is about as light in color as you'll see them.

Could possibly be a satellite or space junk coming down though... metal tends to get the white coloring in the flames.

Bingo. I saw an article about that on CNN this morning and it reminded me of this post...

It's supposed to be Russian rocket debris. So there should be some confirmation on Russian news sites. I'm going to check Pravda.

^ You beat me to it. Not saying it was anything more than just a rocket, but i don't really trust the official stories for these things on face value anymore.

If the Russians acknowledge this themselves, it is all good... but if they don't then it starts become a bit suss.

There wasn't a single word about this supposed Russian rocket debris on the Pravda website. This is very curious indeedy. Somebody may be fibbing. tsk tsk!

Still, NORAD's description of what happened was MUCH better than what the FAA is saying about O'Hare.

It's probably swamp gas anyway.

I would say it was a seagull. But pigeons are more common to Chicago.

Well, they can stop using this story as an excuse for UFO sightings, we know what it looks like now.

Cool video. I just figured out that you can zoom in with a right-click. Shouldn't it be red though? Must be hotter than a red flame.

And I'll bet that thing in New Jersey that went through some woman's roof is part of this thing too.

Otherwise, we're being bombarded.

In all seriousness it does look like something breaking up in the atmosphere, most likely a rocket. The white light tends to be the heated metal breaking off.

If you wanted to really stretch the possibilities, it could be another Roswell they are calling a 'Russian Rocket'
... much doubt that though.

I am an ameteur astronomer. I've seen this same thing many times. Another member metioned that meteors do not get white hot; that is incorrect. The color is not just dependant upon temperature but is also dependant upon material composition. It was likely just a metor but could also have been space junk.

I'm in Kansas also & I missed it? Damn! Maybe should get outside more ;-)
