Just saw the second biggest meteor ever. I was facing north and It came from behind and claimed about 1/3 of the sky that I saw and it was way bigger than any planet. 9pm Lyons, CO. I saw one once that had chunks coming off it and thought it might hit!

It came from behind, but the head was dead.

Wow! That was tonight? Probably too far for me to see from the Springs. Would have been awesome to see, though. Lucky you.

Sounds like you saw a bolide, Gar!  Nice!  Did you notice a green hue?  At 9pm I was hole up in the garage working on some projects so I missed the celestial light show.  Glad you had the opportunity the witness what Ma Nature has to offer.  Gotta love the dark skies!

A few years back (decade?) I was awakened in the wee hours of the morning by some jackass shining his high beams directly into my windows. The cabin was lit up like day. I started to get out of bed and tell him (her?) off, when the light suddenly went out. Just as I was pulling the covers up, a BOOM of incredible volume shook the cabin. I grabbed a sweater and rushed outside to see a glowing trail across the sky roughly from east to west.

A buddy was out checking his calving cows and saw the whole thing. He said he figured it was the end of the world, but he'd still best get those calves in before they froze.

It was said the bolide became a meteorite about 30-50 miles to the west of us, but I don't think anyone ever found it or any of its pieces.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Timm, mighty close to oblivion. Yikes! My cousin volunteers at the Natural History Museum in Denver and gave my sister and I the tour some years back. In a back storage area he showed us 1/2 a meteorite that was about as big as your thorax. It had been cut in half and the cut surface was like early foundry steel with some imperfections and holes, but amazing.

A friend just said she saw another big one last night, so I looked it up. It is the Ursid Meteor shower which peaks tonight if you want to freeze you butt off to watch. Just go outside for the middle of the night wizz. Gar

Well, it's up to 37 here, so not freezing, but of course, complete overcast so any meteor I could see would be far too close!

The bolide I was wakened by probably exploded on entry--the BOOM was a combination of the sonic boom and the explosion of said body. Kinda like the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelyabinsk_meteor but smaller.

I think there's still a total of one person actually hit by a meteor as it became a meteorite--and one car. Could be wrong as there are a lot more people and cars these days.
