Meteors

About 3.00 quick white flash near Orion's belt. I am in quite a dark area so I see a fair few anyway.

Just lower than the belt I witnessed the Geminids in alignment with a puckered cluster, ive been told the cream will help.

Saw one last night and 2 this morning. Still can't locate Comet ISON.
ISON is pretty much bust. It fell apart somewhere around perihelion. Although there does appear to be some remanent fragments, these are way below visible magnitude. Sorry.

I saw a BFO lump of rock flying over Bovington in ´73 or´74,it was so close there was no tail and all I could think at the time was that it was a bit close for comfort,there was something on the news that night and it was travelling Westwards from East England but do any of you clued up types know its name or `number´,I´ve tried to find the bugger on the internet but haven´t found anything?

Not a `wah´!

Me and the missus saw about 12 or so whilst having a sly tab at 2-ish this morning. It helps the sky is as black as the ace of spades in Northumberland.

I thought so, but I was talking to a local OAP who reckoned he'd seen it on Wednesday!

No meteors here in Teesside. They bounce off the pollution

Is there a record on meteorites?

June 20th 2011, around midnight, I stood on a beach in Fiji, beer in hand. Just as I turned to go there was a flash in the sky and and a large streak of light which appeared to to head straight down to the ocean on or just over the horizon. This wasn't a shooting star - it came down and impacted earth in a big yellow streak.

Any ideas? Space junk?

Between you and me, your looking in the wrong place, try Gitmo.

When it darted behind the Sun, a crack team of SF armed with loads and loads of black nasty.

As it was a hush hush mission cant say any more as they will, well you know what i mean.

Weirdest one I have seen was November or December 2010 about 5pm traveling north on the M5 near Gloucester (me not the meteorite). Over to my right and not very high by the looks of it was a bright sparking ball heading north. I thought it was a jet with a tailpipe fire. It was such white brightness and didn't appear to be traveling that fast.
Journey lasted a couple of hours and listening to the radio their were reports of it right up the country as far as north of Glasgow. Turned out it was a meteor but it looked more like a crap special effect thinking back.

Just wait until Jan 2014. If the bits of comet ISON come close enough to hit our atmosphere, then we'll get a meteor shower, the likes of which we'll never forget. And my tinfoil hat will be no protection, either.
