I was in my bedroom in Eagle Mountain looking out to the south when the entire
town went very bright. Shortly afterwards it sounded like a bomb went off and
windows rattled and it felt like an earthquake. It appeared to have landed here
but I doubt it. My 14 year old son was outside when it happened and was all
excited and telling me all about it.
It sounds very much like what you would see if they dropped the big one. Good
thing I was asleep. I might have been ducking and covering and kissing my -um
Let call this "God's shot over the bow".
The Leonids shower of 1833, Mormons thought it was a sign that the end was
I live in Mona and wondered until now what it was that happened. I saw the
bright light, though it was headlights shining in our window and then there was
a noise. Interesting.
I was watching TV and saw a bright light out the window around midnight last
night, I thought i was my imagination.
I saw this driving home from campus to Spanish Fork! It was a couple pulses of
light then the whole sky lit up like daylight for a half second. It was
amazing. I'm glad to know what it was.
I was out for a run at about 9:30PM and saw what I thought was a pretty
impressive meteor in the South. Mostly I was impressed because it was pretty
hazy last night so I figured it had to have been a pretty good meteor for me to
see it in the city. Guess I really missed the show however with this big monster
rumbling overhead. Wish I could have seen that one!
It sure lit up Sanpete County. We were on the West Side Road and I thought our
truck blew up. Just a huge fire ball. Cool.
I saw the flare in Logan, crazy!
The Aliens are coming and will soon land their big mothership which is going to
touch down somewhere in the Tooele desert. The light was the crash of one of
their robotic probe ships. The millitary will always cover this up to conceal
I was at work in Evanston, Wy. I went outside for a sec to check out the meteor
shower around midnight but wasn't expecting too much. Boy, was I wrong. It was
amazing! Standing in the freezing cold was worth watching this spectacular
fireball wizzing by. I just wish I could have heard it!
I live in Las Vegas and saw it as I was heading to work. It looked like it was
right on the other side of the mountain. I almost went off the road it was so
bright, brighter then daylight.
we were driving home from colorado. coming down I-80 and the sky was crystal
clear! there were falling stars all over. it was awesome! then, right out our
windshield, this star was getting way bright. it started to fall and grew this
killer tail! i thought that was cool, but it turned green! made a HUGE flash and
burned into this way bright orange and yellow! i have never seen anything like
We were driving home to Phoenix from Vegas. Though a bomb was dropped in
Phoenix. Thank God it wasn't. We were super scared
Maybe it was an alien ship, crash landing in Tooele county? They could be among
us now. I wonder what they look like?
I was driving home from work and i saw the whole sky light up, just like it was
full daylight, it scared me nearly to death,had no idea what was happening till
i woke up and heard it on the news today. Wow what a magnificent experience.
I thought somebody was shining a flashlight into my house last night. It freaked
me out. Then I heard a sound a few minutes later and it really startled me. Not
fun creeping around your house and garage to see if a prowler is in the house!
My wife laughed this morning when she read this! Makes me feel a bit better.
I was at home watching a movie when a bright flash came through my curtains and
the only thing to shine that bright is the sun normally. It was to the south
west I live in ogden utah.
I, of course, missed this fireball. But, it is a reminder how powerful the
forces of nature are, and how violent the universe can be. If a "bowling ball"
hitting the ground at 44 miles per second (I like that analogy better than the
one in the article) can cause such a display, imagine what a really large
boulder could do. Be grateful this thing did not come down in the middle of
SLC, Ogden, or Provo.
actually it was just another North Korean ICBM test over America. No worrys,
Obama is in charge!!
I was really tired and was plopping into bed when the meteor lit up my southern
blinds and the whole room became bright.I thought I had an anyurism
like in that movie "Phenomenon" as it looked the same. Lol. So glad it was
simply a meteor.
Me and my brother were driving home in the Vegas area, we watched the whole
thing. It was bright white and turned a bright green, than the big blast of
white light. We both were freaking out, we figured it had to be something.
Thanks for the post!
Long haul truck drivers sitting in Little America, WY saw what they though was a
metor or something like that that hit in/or around Ashely National Forest and
the drivers (20 or more of them siting at the truck stop when we saw this
happen) state that it was going in the direction of South by SouthEast. After
leaving the truck stop hundreds of drivers were on the radio talking about this
and they are said the same thing. I was at the truck stop and then continued my
drive on I-80 west bound.
Crazy how someone I know (who many many ppl think he's crazy) has been shown
some "signs" that things like this are happening to him and among us, and then
this happens. Very interesting. But It was cool to see the sky light up as it
Authorities from Dugway Proving Grounds have confirmed that this was merely a
"meteor". Do not be alarmed, just go about your lives as if nothing unusual has
happened. I recommend caution however, "they" are now among us. You can tell by
looking into their eyes.
I was sitting up with my one year old, and I thought a police car had driven by
shining a search light through my window. It was white and blue and then changed
quickly to red/orange and was gone. It was so bright though and I wondered what
it was. I soon found out after reading this article. That is a pretty big
I have seen fireballs before, ones that where so close that you could see the
actual fire behind them- like they were a firework...... They do not compare
to the brightness of this thing. It lit up my blinds brighter than lightning.
It was like there was a super bright lightning strike right outside my west
facing window in bountiful. crazy.
I was driving north on I-15 in American Fork or so, with a group of friends
headed to the desert to watch the meteor shower. The sky turned green suddenly,
then got brighter and we all looked into the sky to our left and saw the
fireball streaking down and breaking up. It was awesome! It only lasted a few
seconds, and the fire went out before it reached the ground. It seemed so much
closer than 100 miles away...
Flash of light, big booming sound, in the direction of Dugway Proving
Ground...\r\n\r\n... sure, and we are supposed to believe this was a \"meteor\"
-- good cover story!
We actually saw a bright flash of light here in Southern Colorado. Interesting
to find out where it ended up and the area it actually covered. Cool!!
My friends and I were sitting in my hot tub in Highland when the entire sky lit
up like day. It was the brightest most amazing thing I have ever seen! I enjoy
astronomy a lot and seeing this was like a dream come true! I have read stories
about seeing meteors like this, but this does not even compare. This was the
most amazing astronomical thing I have ever seen. If you witnessed this meteor,
consider yourself extremely lucky because you will probably never see one like
...WE\'RE DOOMED! DOOMED! ALIENS! Ha ha ha!\r\n\r\n Just kidding! I just like
the idea of aliens.\r\n\r\n Seriously, if aliens came to Earth this this
\'flash\' of light would be about the amount of time it would take them to see
how we treat each other and leave.\r\n\r\n Let\'s treat each other how we would
like to be treated.
I personally witnessed the flash of light, it was awesome and scary, I thought I
was being abducted...Again!
I was just laying on my bed looking out the window to the South West when I saw
what looked like a huge explosion towards the airport or Tooele. Suddenly my
room filled with light as I saw the outdoors like at noonday. I was greatly
surprised and woke up my wife to tell her then got on the TV and radio to see if
a plane had exploded or a refinery in Woods Cross or if it had something to do
with weapons disposal in Tooele. No such word before we fell asleep and found
out the next morning.
wesaw the light outside the house ran outside and a few min after heard
and felt the amazing sonic boom.really extraordinary.
I was outside my house and watched that meteor turn what seems like 3 different
colors! It was awesome to watch and creepy... it looked like it turned green
right before it went to a BRIGHT WHITE!
I sent this out to news groups this morning to see what would arise:Last
night, Nov 17 @ 11:08, I was driving home on Durango, headingnorth, passing Blue
Diamond. The road was dark, with little to block ourview as the area was mostly
undeveloped. Out of the corner of my eye, Isee something glinting towards the
ground, falling from the sky. Myfriend said he had clearly seen its full decent.
Before I could commentto my friend, we both saw a bright flash that enveloped
the entirenorth, northeast perimeter of the valley. It was far too big to
belightning. Now I am not implying anything as I don't know exactly whatthat
was. All I know is:-There was something falling.-There was a huge
flash.-Right after the flash I tried calling 107.9 & 107.5, neither
wereavailable.-No less than 10 minutes later, I stopped by burger king to
grab somefood and mentioned it to the window guy, he said the radio said it was
atransformer explosion.-There is no mention of anything in the news about
dang!! I missed out. Went to bed too early...
--continuted---And I ask myself, "Can an explosion of that size illuminate
the ENTIRENortheastern half of the valley?"A response for vegas
channel 5 news replied this after noon:We got several calls/emails on this
last night. The light was also seen through much of Utah. It has been determined
that is was a dramatically over-bright meteor that was part of the Leonid Meteor
shower. I double-checked this morning with McCarran and Nellis - and nothing
out of the ordinary happened at either of those places last night.Carolyn KresserAssignment ManagerKVVU FOX5 NewsxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxDid anyone else notice that the light started
from the ground and expanded through the sky?
Upon closer inspection it turned out to be the Republican Party's chance to stop
bickering come crashing down...
I too saw it. I thought it was like a million lights being turned on. and
Phew said: "I thought somebody was shining a flashlight into my house last
night. It freaked me out."I thought it was a spotlight from the
medical helicopter that often flies over our house. I have to admit it was
spooky, because it wasn't like a lightning flash--it sort of moved around.
I agree with you Austin... nothing in my life time will i ever see anything
again. I'm all the way in Arizona and I was able to see my skies light up here.
I was facing west parked in the eastern parking lot of the Spanish Fork Wal-mart
and I saw a bright flash then I looked up over the building and saw this fire
ball streaking downward. I was a little spooked by the flash but it was very
cool to see.
KABOOM!!!! THAT ROCKED MY WORLD!
So does this mean the Ozone hole is bigger, I can only cutback so much on my
woweeeeeee!!! cool stuff. i'm in tooele and my back sliding window faces the
west, everything was glowing like a noon day outside. and then a crazy long
rumble. way glad i was up past my bedtime...
I was driving home from work in Lehi Utah and then the whole sky lit up and it
looked like it was day time, At first I thought that it was lightning but there
was no way. The next morning in college my science teacher mentioned what it
was. It freaked me out but now i think that its awsome.
I thought a cop turned on a spotlight to search my car and blind me...I had just
pulled up to my house and was gathering my things to get out. Then I saw it was
actually in the sky. I've seen hundreds of shooting stars but nothing like this.
Saw it from Grand Junction, CO. It was the largest meteor event I've ever seen.
It went from a brilliant blue-green to an intense yellow-orange before
disappearing over the horizon. It was truly amazing.
I'm live in Grand Junction, CO, too. I was washing my face, getting ready, for
bed, when I saw a flash out the bathroom window. I thought it was lightning,
but the skies were clear. So I figured it was a transformer that blew. I am so
glad that I was able to witness it!
Got off work at midnight and was walking home when I saw the splash of light in
the sky....I'm in northwest Wyoming. Told myself it must be Northern Lights,
but didn't really believe myself... Glad to get the rest of the story!
Bright lightshigh above my headFilling my room with lightBrighter that day lightonly in Utah
I live in Evanston, WY and my entire bedroom lit up like someone put a spotlight
in my window! It was crazy it scared me so much I didn't dare get out of bed to
see what it was. It is pretty amazing though, something not many people get to
i was home in downtown Salt Lake City when the light appeared. there were two
bursts but no sound.however, i felt a strange energy pass through me and
raised the hair on my neck. i thought, the chemical storage in Tooele exploded,
but the lack of sound made me think it may have been a meteor.NO radio or
tv station that i can find mentioned it for the next few hours! SHAME on you
My English teacher saw the meteor and said it lite up the whole sky of Star
I was sitting at a stop light in Denver at 12:10am on my way home from work.
The most amazing site I have ever seen in the night sky come down over the
western skies. Very large (looked as if it was seperating into two pieces with
one very long very beautiful blue,green tail. A guy in the car next to me
rolled down his window and we sat and talked about what we had just seen through
the red light and the green light and part of the next red light. Very, very
This was the neatest thing I have ever seen! I am very happy to have been lucky
enough to have seen it.
I live in Ferron Ut. I was watching TV when just after midnight it was like a
car had parked right in front of my patio door and turned the headlights on
bright. The blinds were drawn, but it was sooo bright it scared me. There was a
noise for a brief moment afterwards, but not like an explosion, more like a
truck engine I'm glad to finally find out what it was.
I saw this driving home from work at about 12:10 on E-470 in Highlands Ranch. I
saw what looked like the largest falling star I had ever seen, but it was green
and pink and orange. Then the entire western sky lit up bright green. I was in a
very well-lit area, so I can only imagine how brilliant it must have been if
viewed from a darker area. Absolutely one of the most amazing things I've ever
I can't believe it woke me up fast enough for me to see the night turn to day in
an instant. I thought it was a dream until I heard the media. I have heard
of people being abducted by aliens, taken to their planet where they were
worshiped, but I can say this was for real; I saw it.
I was on my way home at around 11:10pm in los angeles I saw the whole sky light
up in a flash. It flashed twice, light up the whole sky and seemed almost like a
sudden burst of daylight. I didn't see any meteor trail, or any sign of what had
caused it. The flash came from the north east and was extremely bright.
I saw the flash in Escondido, Ca.
I was outside looking at the stars in Moab, right in my driveway. It was the
brightest light I've ever seen, except for the sun. I'm glad to hear from the
folks who actually saw the fireball break up, that must have been awesome. I've
seen fireballs before, but last night I only saw the flash. I saw no flashes
when I saw fireball meteors in the past, this flash was unlike anything I have
ever seen before. Huge and intense.
I thought the smoke rings in the early morning sunrise were just as
awesome....looked as if jet planes had been circling and playing dodge'm....
I just arrived into Denver IntL Airport and was driving west in the rental car
when I saw the meteor fall. This was much bigger than a person's head. It was
more like the size of a car. It fell with a beautiful comet like streak of
blue, yellow and red. It exploded behind the mountain range. I estimate
between CO and Utah. The time was 11:50pm to be exact.
Wow! My daughter and I were coming home from the hospital (west of Phoenix) just
after midnight when we both saw this big flash of light come from the West. It
happened so quickly we thought our eyes were playing tricks on us! Since we are
close to an airforce base naturally we thought one of the planes had gone down.
Glad the hear it wasn't that! It was creepy to see and not know what it was at
I was just leaving work when all of a sudden the sky lit up I turned around just
in time to see the huge stripe of orange and yellow fire in the sky. It was
very cool and unsettling at the same time. I was pretty sure it was a meteor but
couldn't be sure being as I'd never seen one before
Who said nothing good ever happens after midnight?
I live 40 miles north of L.A. My huband and I were outside around 11 pm and all
of a sudden the entire sky lit up like daytime. I'm in L.A!! Cool
The Mayans were inspired!
It could be an ultra secret hypersonic spyplane. There was a report that they
have moved development to Mitchell air base from area 51 in southern Nevada.
Coming from someone who KNOWS BETTER than to believe ANYTHING our government
tells us. Because that was NO meteor !!! we would have heard and seen this same
situation many times over the years don't you think? why was this meteor so
different? WHY ? A 3 FLASH BOOM OF INTENSE LIGHT AND THEN A MASSIVE EXPLOSION
ONCE IT HIT? I have NEVER had an experience like this involving a meteor...Just some food for thought.....
...that was some of my hard earned tax money.
I was faced north on Loose at the 215 exchange. I could not have had a better
view. It was bright white with a long tail. That changed into a greenish hue
with orange at the same time. Disbeliefe was the main feeling I had. Continuing
to watch this falling object it became brighter until it fell behind the
mountains due west of north las vegas, how far north I could not be certain.
What i am certain of, is how it lite of the mountains like the sun was rising
behind them in a briliant greenish white flash...and then nothing. I heard no
sound or felt any vibration.
I saw the flash at 11:07 PST from I-40 in California. I was 15 to 20 miles east
of Ludlow, CA and the flash was to the N-NE. It was bright enough that I
thought a major explosion had occured in Vegas or that directions. The sky in
that direction was like daylight. The others in my vehicle were asleep.
I saw it last night around 1:30 jan 10 2010 I was in northern nv heading south
turned daylight I don't know if the strange energy I felt was from thing or
being in shock for a second. Govt expermenting or sign earth getting ready to
change I'm 75 25 right now on govt.
I was walking my boyfriend up to his car when the whole sky lit up blue. It
looked like it was noon again. I looked up and saw a huge line across the sky. I
turned to my boyfriend to make sure i wasn't seeing things and he saw it too. I
am pretty sure it was a meteor but no records have been shown to prove what i
saw. It was amazing.
