Default Did anyone see any big fireballs??

Got up to watch the meteroite (sp?) shower around 0345 and all I saw was a bunch of the smaller ones. Did anyone see any good ones?

It was hard to stay outside over 15 minutes at a time.

I saw one that was alot brighter and lasted longer then the others. Still, it only lasted for like 2 seconds maybe. I was suprised to see them going diff directions though, I would've thought they would be roughly the same. It was cold at 0230!

Those were nothing compared to the fireballs I saw in the early morning after the hot sauce challenge.

It was the "Geminid meteor shower" so named because they appear to the observer to be emanating from the constellation Gemini
