So I'm not crazy after all (saw a fireball fall from the sky in N. Florida)

I was driving home from the airport and was on U.S. 1 heading into St. Augustine. Around 6:45, saw a large ball of fire falling in the sky. Very impressive, and definitely not what I see when I see a falling star.

I thought I had imagined it, but when I googled this morning, saw I wasn't the only one.

4. The comments, oh my.

And then they were even worse on another story linked there about aircraft in restricted airspace near Obama's resort:

I posted an article the other day about fireballs over Cuba as well.

3. My girlfriend and I saw one about 1978. There was fairly low cloud cover and

we were driving in the direction it came through the clouds. Spectacular and relatively slow as it disappeared beyond the horizon. It was impossible to tell how close we may have been but there was no sound. We knew what it was, realizing that's what a meteor must look like if you are ever lucky enough to see one that close and low to the ground.

5. I just thought it was another Florida republicans head exploding here

After all the State is having to change it's State Employee's health care to the Federal level (president Obama's).
