    Must be the season. The one I saw recently in Washington State was the biggest, longest, brightest I had ever seen. Nothing compared to this, but still impressive.

    @Darren: It looks real.

    @Dave2: Oh yeah I remember you mentioning that. Have never seen a meteorite anywhere near that bright myself.
