  1. A meteor that big and not a peep from our government agencies like NASA or Homeland Security whom supposedly is keeping us safe. A meteor being seen in so many states tells me it had to be at least the size of a Volkswagon Beatle. Something that big would level half of New York City if it were to hit straight down and not glance off the atmosphere. A word of advice. You are on your own. Don’t expect any help from government. Even if our government knew a meteor was about to hit they wouldn’t tell us. For fear of a panic. They want to keep the sheeple grazing and paying their taxes ….at all costs.
