Meteor!!!

Postby SeanE » Fri Mar 09, 2007 12:32 am

I saw a meteor this morning!!!!! An absolute ripper and my very first for myself!!

It came across the sky at 7.10am this morning just as the sun was peeking above the hills to the east so the sky was that slight purple-y blue in the morning.

It was bright white-hot at the head with a beautiful azure-aquamarine flame tapering to a hint of fire-orange at the back - all up about an inch and half long from my POV.

It travelled east to west across the sky for about 5 secs (enough time for me to shout look at that! 3 or 4 times at any rate) before splitting into two just below the 3/4 moon that we have in the sky at present and disappearing.

absolutely gorgeous!

That's right, human. It was a me-te-or. Resume ignorance cycle.

Wow, that must have been a big one. I've never seen anything like that. Neato!

See, this is why we all need cybernetic eyes that are constantly recording things. :mad:

Odnarb, are you TRYING to draw attention?? Back to your station, and I want at least 3 penance rites from you.
