The Best Videos of Last Night's East Coast Meteor


Though it was nothing like the Russian meteor, the meteor seen on the East Coast did cause a brief flurry of activity on Facebook and Twitter last night.

We'll see if there are any better videos than this, but the three being circulated the most on social media.

Watch (without high expectations), AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. 2013 is surely the year of the meteor/asteroid.

  2. Not Impressed. Russia Wins. BTW, this happens every single day somewhere in the world... most of the time over the oceans where we do see it happen.

  3. I meant to say, where we *don't* see it happen.

  5. Just in time to jinx SCOTUS with bias to the fundies who alone understand the homosexual portent of natural phenomena. I'm so scared.

  6. I noticed that the light seemed to pulse twice during the trajectory shown. Passing thru a cloud? Why did it do that?

  7. @Goodcarver, most likely the light pulse is a result of it splitting into separate pieces as it passed through the atmosphere.

  8. Wow, great videos. Things like this make you realize how small you are in this big universe...and how powerless you really are. Thanks for sharing. Nature is amazing!
