  1. YOUR story said the BOLIDE lit-up the sky for several seconds, AND, was seen for 15 minutes… WHICH WAS IT??? A “fireball” of 15 minutes in duration is a physical IMPOSSIBILITY!!! Let me know when some actual METEORITES are recovered from this event. Then YOU will have an actual story… Fireballs are a daily occurrence and are ONLY newsworthy when they spawn “cosmic-treasure.” Best Regards, Robert A. Szep.
