so i was reading as always and on here at the same time and ive noticed a couple accidents that had happened with "supposed" meteors striking houses

First being Fire Ball from Heaven

then another in texas im having a hard time finding now!

but anyways this

Next week, Earth's annual October encounter with the Draconid meteor shower will peak as our planet passes through several trails of tiny rocks and dust from the comet 21P/Giacobini–Zinner. But the shooting star display is also posing some concern for NASA spacecraft. NASA is looking into strategies to safeguard spacecraft, including the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope, from possible dings from the meteor shower. Meanwhile, scientists in the United States and Germany have been experimenting with hypervelocity impacts in order to simulate what kind of damage could occur from meteoroid strikes. Just what kind of light show the Draconids may present for skywatchers on Oct. 8, when the meteor shower peaks, is hard to predict. But meteoroid experts hold varying views as to the intensity of this year’s go-round with the Draconids. [Related: October's Draconid Meteor Shower May Impress]

has got me to thinking what if this is just the start? and that same of the meteors are not burning up all the way...then it goes into

Some forecasters say it could be a strong shower, maybe even a meteor storm of up to 1,000 shooting stars an hour at its peak.

now whos to say that some dont make it by pure luck...or something im just curious because it seems it could help explain some of whats going not saying THIS is the reason those places we're just gone from fire in the sky but could it be related? lets discuss you can find the entire thread here / Meteor shower

Hopefully we will have clear skies for this visual treat.

Fingers crossed for no apocalyptic damage, unless that damage is to our politicians, then it's ok.
