American Meteor Society – Meteor Activity for 2/23/13 thru 3/1/13……

Photographer Susan Lary of the Southern California Weather Authority captured the so-called fireball and provided the image to NBC News.

“I saw a light and looked directly at the meteor as it came down in the ocean off Corona Del Mar. Bits came off, and it was bright white,” Laguna Hills resident Patric Barry wrote in an email to NBC4.

About 50 people contacted the American Meteor Society on Thursday with reports of a “green fireball” lighting up the sky. Sightings were reported in Ventura, Anaheim, Van Nuys, Los Angeles, Paso Robles, San Francisco and Santa Barbara, according to the group’s website.

Barry spotted the object out of his living room window about 10:35p.m.

The sightings come days after Bay Area residents were treated to a light show of their own when a fireball was seen streaking across the sky.

Another fireball sighting was reported this month in Florida, but the most spectacular celestial event occurred when a meteor soared over Russia before the rock slammed into Earth’s surface, sending shockwaves across a widespread area.

  1. If reality is just a computer simulation, I’d like to give the meteors the coordinates for Wash. DC. and Sacramento, CA.

  2. Remember the movie, “2012”? “The guy’s an actor. When the government tells you not to panic. THAT’S WHEN YOU PANIC!”

    Well, when the MSM says, “Relax. The sky is not falling”, then THAT MEANS YOU PANIC, since what they are saying is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what is truly happening. Be careful, #1NWOHatr and Cathleen.

  3. NC, especially in the war on terror I agree that there is little to fear when the government is actively fearmongering, but has the gov’t really been going out of its way lately to tell people not to panic about meteors?

    Seems they’re really saying very little about them. I’d worry more about Hanford than meteors.
