The Early Bird

did not get the worm, but at 6:28 AM I saw on my walk a fireball (bolide). It stopped me in my tracks. The first real big one I have seen in all those years of nightshift and after retirement, walking in the dark of the morning.

What a sight that must've been! I've never seen one. I guess I would've been dumb and said it was a shooting star. Too bad we can't make our minds print out pictures.

For some reason I can't post a link, but if you go to Wikipedia and look up meteorites and in the box with the different kinds click on 'Bolide' you get a picture of exactly what I saw.
