I saw something strange in the sky last night. It appeared to be a flaming object (meteor?). I was driving on I-70 last night about 9:00 passing along Pocahantus when looking over to the north of I-70 when I saw it. Can anyone tell me what it was?

I saw it too. I was driving home on 1-15 south,at about 6:00 pm. I always look at the sky hopping to see something beautiful and wonderful and I saw it last night. It seem to be a shooting start but then it "exploded" I saw the red, yellow, orange, almost like fire. It did not last but a few fractions of a second. Then it was gone. In the sky all I could see was a tail of "smoke" or "ice' like the one jets leave in the sky. I wish I could know what ir was.

I was driving north on HWY 101 in northern CA, it was off to the northwest and fallen like a huge "falling star" but big at the base (bowling ball size to the eye) leaving a green and blue trail with a burning red and orange ring around the ball. Definately not a planet, Mars was large last night but this was clearly something breaking through our joke, it was AWESOME!

I saw it too, I live in Longmont Colorado, and it was in the western sky. Strange thing was, it changed direction shortly before exploding.

Guys it was a space shuttle. I heard that it was going to be passing and I brought my boys outside to watch for it. It is orbiting the earth. The first sighting was on Monday and there was another passing last night. It looked like a meteor yes or a very bright and fast moving star, but it was in fact a space shuttle that has been orbiting the earth.

My Wife and I saw something in the ski last night Sept. 28, 2009 about 10:30pm. It looked like it was following a Plane. We could see the plane lights blinking. Behind it, We saw a dim faded light. It looked like rounded wings, or a half circle with only seeing the rounded part vaguely in the dark sky. We looked at it for about 20 seconds and wanted a clearer view and ran to the front yard, to realize it was gone. I have never seen anything like this before, but have seen other objects in the sky in the past.

I was driving north on Hwy 95 about 45 minutes north of Las Vegas (last night, Nov 17, 2009). At about 9:30ish the sky lit up like daylight, and flicker once. It was like DAYLIGHT! I was on the phone talking to a driver who was eastbound on I-80 near the intersection of Hwy 95 and I-80 (Trinity Junction). We both yelled out loud, "Holy %#@$, did you see THAT?". He actually saw a fireball streak across the sky and seemingly disappear behind the mountains, then the HUGE flash occurred. Sounds like a meteor might have made it to the ground, or darned close TO it. As the evening progressed and I heard from more drivers (we're all truck drivers here), many more guys had seen this thing, and from all over the western US. Whatever it was, it was BIG!

I was sitting outside my home in Cabery, IL and at a little after ten p.m. I saw a fireball coming down. My boyfriend, who had also witnessed it, believed he heard it hit in the distance. It looked so close - nothing like I've ever seen before.
