Not sure if this is the right forum to place this in? Mods please move if need be.

This appears to be the beginning of the big meteor shower that is expected to peak on the night of December 13th.



TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)- Hundreds claim they saw a large light, as well as heard one to two loud booms across Tucson Tuesday night.



KGUN 9 has received tons of calls and over 600 comments on our Facebook page from people across Tucson and Arizona.

We even had a person in Flagstaff claim to see something suspicious.

Here's an account from our viewer Tony Kubrak: "My wife and I and my son were sitting in the house, and we felt this absolutely tremendous explosion, I mean, it shook the windows, it shook everything in the house. I stepped outside, and had to be no more than 3 minutes later after I hear all of this, and I see this tremendous, white, bright light in the western sky. And it was just...it was absolutely enormous, I couldn't believe it."

Hi MrLimpet , you might want to add some original comments and thoughts of your own when creating a thread instead of just a quote and a link.

My guess would be an experimental military craft, the bangs were sonic booms.

My wife and I seen a bright light at about the same time but we did not hear any type of noise by the time we went out to look for it 30 sec. or so after and there was nothing.

I do know that they are conducting month long training here so maybe some type of secret aircraft or just a simple meteor.

It was a meteor that exploded in the air.

www.cnn.com...

Every news story is reporting it as a meteor. Not sure why the cause of the explosion was unknown in OP's story.

or just a simple meteor

Simple or not, it produced loud booms which suggest deep penetrating through the atmosphere.

Why is this even a mystery? lol To me it looks like a typical meteoric fire ball.

If you go to www.spaceweather.com... you will find that tonight there are 32 fireballs projected to penetrate the Earth's atmosphere.

Change the date in the above right corner on the site to yesterday and you will find there were 13.

It's my understanding this number today (32!!) will peak in the days to come.

Below is why...


Earth is entering a stream of debris from rock comet 3200 Phaethon, source of the annual Geminid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Dec. 13-14 with as many as 120 meteors per hour. Lunar interference will be a problem, as glare from the nearly-full Moon reduces the number of visible meteors 2- to 5-fold. You can listen to radar echoes from the Geminids, unaffected by moonlight, on Space Weather Radio. Also, tune into NASA's live web chat about the Geminids on Friday the 13th beginning at 11 pm EST.

It doesn't look like a meteor to me. A meteor that big would leave a bright trail like the recent one in Russia. This is far too clean to be a meteor.

What does it look like to you?


A meteor that big would leave a bright trail like the recent one in Russia.

The Chelyabinsk meteor occurred on daylight.


This is far too clean to be a meteor.

I for one will be getting my comfy chair some warm clothes and a thermos of hot coco and relax under the sky tonite, hopefully the show will be awesome.

Wow, are all the newscasters in Arizona that clueless?

Obviously a meteorite or incoming space debris until proven otherwise. Lemme know when it's clocked on radar doing an about-face at several thousand miles an hour and we'll discuss other possibilities.

In short, it's a rock.

Yes the Geminids, problem is from Spaceweather only 2 of the 13 are from them, so where did the 9 sporadics come from?


On Dec. 10, 2013, the network reported 13 fireballs.
(9 sporadics, 1 December Monocerotid, 2 Geminids, 1 sigma Hydrid)


American Meteor Society

see above for eyewitness reports - 42 of them.

Anything that breaks the sound barrier makes a sonic boom Including meteors on entry.
