What is with all these fireballs. There seems like a lot of them coming down of recent.
I disagree entirely, but also respectfully.
See, I don't for a second think we've had any increase of meteor or "fireball" activity, I'm yet to see proof of this anyway, but instead what I
do think is happening is people's awareness on the subject has suddenly increased. It's as simple as that really. See, we had the great, big Russian
meteor strike, you know, the ver one which produced the awesome sky show which had the news talking for days on end, providing endless videos and
Now, In the aftermath of this, we've also see more threads and more discussion take place on the subject? Does that point to an increase of activity?
No, not necessarily, it's pointing towards - quite clearly, in my opinion - nothing but people simply looking out for it more, now that they've seen
a major perhaps even once in a lifetime one.
That's what It seems like to me. So no, no increase of activity, just more awareness and more people reporting their sightings, and in turn other's
taking an interest..
