Huge Meteorite Breaks Up Over Denver

At about 6:15 am (local time), a huge fireball sprayed across the sky here in Denver. One of local station’s traffic copter caught it live. Don’t bother with the sound, the commentary is truly inane.

    Correction: It’s was a rocket
    That’ll teach me for believing a Fox affiliate. <a href="http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/local/article/0,1299,DRMN_15_5256178,00.html">According to NORAD</a>, the fireworks were pieces of Russian rocket re-entering the atmosphere.

        Well, so much for Denver being plagued with meteor freaks.

          That would Boulder, actually.

            They don’t need meteors to be called freaks! In the mean time, can someone ship us some snow shovels? There is a shortage here and more snow on the way!

              Maybe that’s what the Russians were trying to help out with. Burn up some of those mountains of snow with fiery blast of rocket debris!

                Or it is all a cover up and Boulder is the new Roswell. Actually that would explain a lot…

    Their weatherman frightens me …
    Even though I know most TV weathermen are nothing but talking heads, the majority of them at least know enough to fake some modicum of knowledge.

    A meteor shower is "an exctinct constellation." Mind you he double checked his copy and read this on the air.

    Wow.

    News-babe: "Why do the pieces seem to fizzle out?"

    Weather-fool: "I don’t know."

    I know at least two of the meteorologists in my area actually have some experience in the field. The rest of them take pains to hide their ignorance.

    I am truly, absolutely speechless.

      And sadly this pinhead likely makes 5 times what I do. Ah well, life is never fair.
