Didn't see or hear anything.

Didn't know about it until I watched the 11 o'clock news.

Sprinkled Reese's Pieces in the backyard. Nothing yet.

Apparently there has been 3 of these in the last few days. The one over Michigan and two over Indiana?

They estimate the size of that meteor at golf ball size; that's before it hit the atmosphere. Would you like to estimate the IQ of those looking for it? I guess they figure they might also stumble across Atlantis or a unicorn, or maybe even the Lost Dutchman Mine at the same time.

A bit off topic, but I wonder if there are still forum members who actually saw Sputnik 1 in 1957? I was 9 y.o. at the time

Ed, does the "rectum scale 2 quake" refer to needing 2 fresh pairs of shorts? :lol:

Not sure where you got that information. They were estimating it to be 1-2 yards wide the night it happened. Pieces larger than a "golf ball" have already been found.

Actually, Sputnik was so small practically no one saw it. What they saw was the 27-meter long booster that also went into orbit.
(I don't remember seeing Sputnik or its booster, but can recall seeing Echo 1, which was inflatable and a lot bigger, three years later when I was 9.)
