raxacorricofallapatorius: (winter)
Last night on our way home from my nephew's birthday party, we saw a meteorite falling from the sky. We didn't know what it was at the time, only that there was a huge light streaking in a downward arc toward the earth. I saw it first, and it was green/orange with a long sparking tail. I made a noise and pointed, and Fred just managed to catch a glimpse of it before it "fell" out of sight. We looked at one another and said "what the hell was THAT?" Since we were very near Schiphol, I thought perhaps it might be a plane on fire, but there was no explosion or further noise, and as we were hurtling down the freeway at the time, it was quickly behind us and we thought no more about it.

This morning, it was all over the news. While the location the article names isn't anywhere near us, it was seen all over the Netherlands, and there are claims of sightings from as far away as Spain.

Now that's something you don't see every day. :c)
