Monster meteors


I subscribe to quite a few blogs through Google Reader, and one of the blogs (The Tech Observer) offered a link to what it described as “Here’s a must-see picture of a magnitude-20 meteor passing over Croatia last week, in broad daylight!” 

Naturally, I had to follow the link :)

Note: When you click the link above, you will be directed to a Croatian news web site.  Wait a bit for the video of the segment about the meteors to load up (that took about 10 seconds on my connection).  Enjoy.

Postscript: Watching the video (specifically the bits with the meteors), I found myself alternately awed and disturbed.  Here’s the thing: The only times I had seen things like that fly through the air like that in broad daylight like that, people were either running for cover or toward the impact area to survey the damage.
