Once in a life time


The other night the most incredible thing happened to me. I get off of work at 10 o'clock pm as usual, and I stopped in to check on my mother before heading home. As I was leaving my mother's I was stopped in my tracks by what I thought was the sun falling to the earth. I was terrified and dumb founded at the same time. Then I Saw the thing fly a crossed the sky and only then did I realize what it was. It was the most biggest shooting star or meteor that I had ever seen. It light up the skyline as if the sun was coming out.
The picture here I got off the web and does not really do what I saw justice. But I wanted to give you some idea what it looked like. I am not sure how anyone got pictures because it did happen so fast, but I am glad someone did. INCREDIBLE!!!
ENJOY!!!!
Julie

You are so lucky to have seen this marvelous sight. I believe there are cameras aimed at the sky always, so it was probably grabbed by many. Thank you so much for sharing it!

OUTSTANDING!!! What an incredible moment in your life. I heard about it on our news but I did not get an opportunity to see it myself. It shows us all the power of nature, God and the universe and how very small we all are by comparison. Thank you for sharing. I bet you will never forget that moment in your life.
