Sky watchers last night were treated --or scared--by a glimpse of a giant fireball--and maybe three--that spread its light and sight across eight different states in the Continental United States.. It was so big a story Friday night that Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis quickly switched topics from a creepy video that may induce mind control to the lights in the sky..

This is a video of the fireball as seen from the Indiana skies..

Astronomers.Org has a feature article saying that over 200 people reported the fireball -- and it may have been many more than that.

Numerous other sources on Twitter say there were reports of 400 to 600 who say they saw the lights..

According to what we know at this time: The fireball was in Ohio around 11:05 PM.. it was also seen in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Indiana, and Michigan..

Clyde Lewis, in his ongoing coverage during his show with eyewitness reports calling in, also posted a photo from Ohio he received of three lights in the sky.

This major sky event isn't the first this week. There have been reports all across the United States  of similar meteors. Though this one in the eight states last night was quite large, the Midwest had its own big fireball one night earlier..

And timing is always everything..
These giant bright flashes in the sky are coming during the height of fear over the FEMA REGION 3 preparations.. Though FEMA itself discounted the rumors that the agency is preparing for any major events along the East Coast, incidents like what happened last night are not quelling any minds to sleep.. Instead lots of sleepless people may be looking at the clear star-filled skies again tonight--and quite possible may capture a glimpse of fireballs streaking through the midnight air..



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
