I would like to know if anybody west of Chicago saw anything strange in the sky around 5:55 central time today march 6th. I was driving with my 10yo daughter heading west on rt 30 in Oswego. I look up to see what appeared to be an astroid on fire heading to earth at about a 30 degree angle and south... Maybe 1 or 2 towns over, it was hard to tell the distance. It was on fire, went out, and then was on fire again and then went out again. The second time it went out it appeared to "pull up" and change course. Moments later two fast moving jets flew by, spun around and flew by again.
I caught several images, this is a zoomed in unedited shot I caught with my iPhone.
Nice catch of a meteor in the Earth's atmosphere. Not sure if it landed anywhere on the planet or just burnt up in the air. Just to note, it's not an asteroid! However, you get a *S* for your picture. Call it fireball in the sky or something like that. Just my two cents.edit on 6-3-2011 by Skywatcher2011 because: (no reason given)
