Eyewitness To Florida Meteor Fireball 08NOV2011

Email From:
Un named Reporter-Port St. Lucie, FL:
While walking my dog I noticed a Fireball shooting directly down towards earth.  With the news of the YU55 I have been more focused on the sky than normal tonight.  I live in Port Saint Lucie Florida ( South East Florida).  The Fireball I witnessed occurred at 9:00 PM EST.  I am an avid outdoorsman and have seen plenty of shooting stars which do not look like what I saw tonight.  I began searching the web to see if anyone else had similar experiences and found this site.  Hope someone can answer what I may have seen.

If you witnessed this fireball, please tell us about it (date, time, location etc.) !! Email wxtx01@gmail.com  Thank You!

PASADENA, Calif. -- Scientists working with the 230-foot-wide (70-meter) Deep Space Network antenna at Goldstone, Calif., have generated a short movie clip of asteroid 2005 YU55. The images were generated from data collected at Goldstone on Nov. 7, 2011, between 11:24 a.m. and 1:35 p.m. PST (2:24 p.m. and 4:35 p.m. EST). They are the highest-resolution images ever generated by radar of a near-Earth object.

The short movie clip can be found at: http://1.usa.gov/uVJvmS .

    Hi, I saw a HUGE Fireball tonight on my way home from work at approx 6:45 EST. I am in Montreal. I was driving East on Hwy 40, and I saw in the sky what appeared to be something crashing. I was talking with Mom and said to her" OMG, something is crashing!" It was travelling downward very swiftly: Right to Left (or NW if you will). It looked like a huge ball of fire. I could almost SEE the burning fire...I wonder if and where it landed. Amazing.
    BTW: My posting is from Nov. 7th, 2011  Thanks Lori!  OTHERS?? Please post to wxtx01@gmail.com to confirm.
