I've never seen a meteor shower in person. I've seen them on videos, though, but I've never seen anything quite like this.

Wednesday evening, residents in cities from Sacramento to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and even cities in Utah, witnessed beautiful balls of fire that streaked across the sky in a phenomenal display. The meteors, which moved at a rapid speed across the night sky, seemed to carry a trail of fiery debris.

Have a gander:

It looks more like satellite debris crashing through the atmosphere, but neither NASA nor any other space agencies have said anything about it, so it's probably just a meteor; and a damn beautiful one at that.

It's ALIENS!!!!

I've seen a fair number of small meteorites swipe across my sky, but 99% of them are so small and subtle that you wouldn't even notice unless you were staring at the sky on a clear night.
