Last night, I was at an outside bbq festival watching the band play when I saw a fireball streak across the sky in the southern sky. It was very bright and yellow, and shot across in an east to west direction before burning out.

This was in Southern Illinois around 9:30-10:00 pm.

Well I think after that Russia meteor I bet there has been a lot more sightings cause it is in the spotlight.

But heck, nothing I can do about a meteor so if it comes, it comes.

I agree with other posters when they say, that because of our technology we are able to report these events and get them out to the world, it seems like their are more events. Also the fact that new technology is coming more of a common thing in the MSM we notice it more.

I also agree with others who think that this large piece of rock that is coming our way has alot of debree coming in the same time with it. And we will be seeing more of this in the future.

It's always a good idea to keep some extra water and supplies around. If your power were to go out for a short time in your area. For any reason.

Thank you.


I'm still learning earthquake data, so the skywatch thing will have to wait. I depend upon people like you.

I don't really think there is a conspiracy here, but more a long the line that there is something big on target for Earth soon. Nasa is watching out for something.

Duck and say your prayers! That's what I did when two rather large meteors on two separate occasions came barreling over my head, both headed West South West. Sonic boom, sizzling, pops, crackles, and multitude of colored sparkles in its wake, too real and awe-inspiring. Didn't have camera phones or twitter back then, so no real way of proving and reporting thing like that. Peace, Xenongod

My thoughts would be that we are moving through some kind of debris field and that the trajectories are the same because the meteors are all crossing us at parallel vectors.

Good call JohnGrissom about the impact on the moon recently. Combined with the Russian meteor, that is reason to suspect that we may be seeing increased meteor activity.

I have a theory about why there may be an increase in fireballs that is rather more "down to earth" as it were...

I posted it in another related thread here: Increase in Fireball Sightings...

Thank you so much for posting this. Yes I saw this. Ran in the house to get witnesses. lol We all saw it on Saturday evening May 18 at about 8 PM or so. Sun was setting. Was hoping to see something on the local news at 10 PM but nothing. It was floating along, then flamed up like a flare, like a round fire ball. After a minute or so it seemed to drop straight down vertically. We all watched it. Then seemed to stop in mid fall and floated off horizontally to the west. I live in southern Indiana. At first we thought a helicopter was on fire.

I'm in Western Kentucky and we could see one of the reported fireballs. It was one of the brightest ones I've ever seen. We had just finishing loading the trucks after our concert last night, and a bunch of us we standing around outside talking when it lt up the sky. It was so bright and intense that I told everyone to be real quiet because I thought we might even be able to hear it if it exploded. We could see it break apart, fade away, and the get brighter again. It was absolutely amazing.


Amazing so many see this in the same Neck of the Woods and the only news report is here on ATS.
Saw this in Evansville. Nothing about it on the local news.

Last week, while at work i seen a fireball/meteor in Connecticut heading west around 20:45 (+ or - 10 mins).
It was really cool, I just happened to end my lunch early and while on patrol I looked up and caught it just in time.
I know it's not the last 24 hours, but what the heck, figured I share.

Are we doomed again? End of the world party-yeah! Seriously, I'm jealous, you guys are lucky. I've had a lifetime interest in astronomy, and am always looking at the sky. I've seen some nice meteor showers, although I have to get out of the city, but have never seen a fireball, and my wife's seen one too. I don't know whether to mope, pout, or just go feel sorry for myself. No, wait-End of the world party-yeah!

4 of us here in Kentucky witnessed a green fireball meteor Saturday evening from my patio.
Pretty Awesome sight!
It was to our south-west, about 20 -25 degrees above the horizon, heading from the south to the west or northwest direction.

Looked like a firework with a bright green corona and illuminated smoke trail.

I have seen a lot of meteors, but this one was the best by far!

I know we have thousands of manmade satellites up there and they must have a lifespan before their orbits deteriorate and they come back down. Add in that there's a lot of debris from satellites crashing into each other and every day the debris cloud increases. How many of these incoming fireballs are something we sent up there and not the universe out to get us?

On the other hand, if you want to know what the governments may be worried out of their minds about, read the Paul LaViolette material. Easy to find here on ATS and he has his own site also. His credentials and education are impeccable but the physics is so far over my head I can only read and be amazed; no way to know if he's crazy or right on the money. Things aren't looking good for next year...

To funny!

It may just be people are actually starting to look up to the skies these days and with the advent of the digital age I think we'll see more pics of fireballs, meteorites, space debris, and UFO's too.

I feel guilty cause that was a dumb one liner and I do enjoy the subject of meteors...I think that events like these and the recent one in Russia may do something to help spur public spending on space exploration so that even if a fair amount of damage where to be done it may in the long run prove to be a good thing unless of course its a knock out blow
