Space Firework or Meteor Shower

Cambridge 6th August 2007

OMG – I saw my first Meteoroid yesterday ever and it was HUGE. It left an enormous tail when it entered the atmosphere. My friend and myself sat in my garden watching stars after that and If I would have been on my own I would have thought I have gone crazy. We saw many stars moving in the sky but without the tails. Well with many I mean 3 without tail and 2 with tail.

Of course I did an Internet search first thing this morning to find this recent article describing the events.
