saw a meteor flash in the sky on Monday night. very cool.
i thought it was a comet, and dialed home only to get the machine. had to speak very excitedly to it, and hang up. Was about 9.15pm, running late for the drama rehearsal.
coming back to the comet/meteor – it was a full 2 sec sudden flash of bright light in a bit of a curve that just vanished into a dot. i was driving, and boy, that was some sight. thankfully, no immediate cars ahead of me, or i’d have surely hit a bumper.
not the meteor i saw 2 nights ago, but had to have a visual so here is one from space.com’s website.
