Just a quick note: a rather biggish (I love technical terms) bit of rock is expected to enter the Earth’s atmosphere tonight (October 6th, 2008). It is big enough to have many astronomers anticipate a ‘fun fireball’, but not so big that it would not be expected to burn up before it can hit anything.
All right, I don’t know if it will even be visible from our part of the world, but…
If you are out about 10-ish (Eastern Daylight), keep your eyes open. You never know – you might see a really big shooting star!
And if you know more (or if you get to see it) – please, share.
