There are numerous geophysical phenomena other than surface deformation that have been associated with seismic events.These include: very low-frequency (VLF), ultra low-frequency (ULF), and extremely low-frequency (ELF) magnetic fields observed on the ground and in space, high-frequency electric fields (including earthquake lights), and thermal anomalies observed with satellite sensors. There are individual events, such as the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake ELF magnetic field, or the warming observed coincident with the Hector Mine earthquake, that appear significantly correlated with seismicity.
The word bolide comes from the Greek βολίς (bolis) which can mean a missile or to flash. The IAU has no official definition of "bolide", and generally considers the term synonymous with "fireball". The term generally applies to fireballs reaching magnitude −14 or brighter. Astronomers tend to use "bolide" to identify an exceptionally bright fireball, particularly one that explodes (sometimes called a detonating fireball). It may also be used to mean a fireball which creates audible sounds.
The visible light produced by a meteor may take on various hues, depending on the chemical composition of the meteoroid, and its speed through the atmosphere. As layers of the meteoroid are stripped off and ionized, the color of the light emitted may change according to the layering of minerals. Some of the possible colors and the compounds responsible for them are: orange/yellow (sodium); yellow (iron); blue/green (copper); purple (potassium); and red (silicate).

Someone must have accidentally launched a rod from the rods of god satelite. Oh and as all government ideas it did not work. Forgot about the Rods of God until now, just a humorous thought floating thru my head.
Could you imagine the butt chewing that corporal got???
