Did you see that tonight! Comet or UFO?

I worked some Over-Time today operating a 950 Caterpillar and operating a new piece of equipment. When I was driving home I saw bright light streaking across the sky heading west. It was a bright light streaking at a unbelievable rate. This was around 8:30pm on Navy Base road. Any other people see this?

I didn't see it. Don't overlook the possibility that it was a falling star.

Didn't see it but sounds like a meteorite.

Hey Richard, that was the spaceship carrying the long overdue replacement for Al Davis in Oakland.

He can retire now!

Perhaps the International Space Station? It's very bright on occasion.

I saw it from the back deck. It looked like a meteorite falling into the Pacific.

Boy: I hope you are right!

Greg: it was a biggy from where I was seeing it. And fast. Big ball.

Was it Joseph Biden's undeserved aura of intelligence and erudition burning up as it hit the atmosphere?
