Fireball Spotted Over California

If recent news reports are to be believed, we are now living in a science-fiction movie. After a meteor exploded over Russia and an asteroid skimmed past Earth, a fireball was seen in the sky over western California on Friday night. A flash of light was reported at 7:45 p.m. in Santa Rosa, appearing green at first before slowly turning yellow as it descended. Scientists say it was probably a “sporadic meteor,” an unremarkable event that happens several times a day all around the world. There is reportedly no connection between the fireball, the meteor, and the asteroid, but who are we to stop the conspiracy theorists?
