budgenator's Journal: Big-ass meteor

Journal by budgenator

Last week on july 17 at approx 10pm EDT, I saw the most awesome meteor of my life. I'm used to seeing meteors as a pin-point source of light moving in the sky, but this was nothing like that. This meteor had a shape to it, it was cigar shaped and about as long as a 1cm would appear head at arm's length. In about a half second it crossed 30 degrees of sky and left a visible smoke trail!

Actualy I was very surprised that it was soundless, I've spent the last week scanning the papers and internet for reports of other sitings or UFO reports but have found nothing.

How many QA engineers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 3: 1 to screw it in and 2 to say "I told you so" when it doesn't work.

Working...
