Mr. Underbridge writes: OK, slashdot — there are a number of us who are interested in the happenings of the night sky at around 9:00 EDT.

It's also visible at least as far south as Georgia. The link is useful for the comments section — read after about 9 EDT. So, denizens of slashdot — what are we seeing here? Aliens? Aurora? Meteor fragments? Other?
