The Sky is Falling

I was outside on the porch smoking my pipe around 11:12p eastern when I saw what was probably a meteor East SouthEast from here. It looked fairly large, I initially thought it looked liked some fireworks descending (before exploding) but definitely too fast for a plane or something. The angle of descent was pretty sharp too. It was fairly hard to judge the distance, but I would say that it landed somewhere near the train tracks by capital boulevard or somewhere on the other side of the highway. I did not hear the sound of impact, so who knows.

Pretty cool. I wish I knew where it landed. I’ve always wanted to catch my own meteorite.
